I assume this is a new problem (maybe due to gnulib??) since "-i"
works fine in 4.1.5. I use it fairly often (easier than manually
renaming / deleting) although it's GNU sed 4.x specific, so it's not
ideal for portability (unless you assume it's present, ahem, yet
NetBSD [and others??] still uses a wimpy other one lacking "\<" among
other things).
