I would say that CCL is certified to take up space on your disk.
Anything more than that...well, not so much.

I think CCL is reasonably good about calling fsync before streams
wrapped around file descriptors are closed, but as far as
I know, nobody has tried to comb through the file i/o code
with the specific thought "is this going to be robust in
the face of power loss and delayed block allocation" in mind.
