Description

For a while, sed only accept -i with an argument. The workaround for this, which worked for a while, was 'sed -i "" ...', which Joyent relied up.

#586 broke the workaround, so now that doesn't work.

There is no way to use sed -i without a backup file which works with either version of sed.
