no unlink file before write testing

As for write testing, fio chooses to unlink the files before testing.
I run the testing on many big files, so the file preparation spends
lots of time. Is it possible to add a new parameter, such like
nounlinkwrite, to ask fio not to unlink files before testing? Its default
value could be false.

Current parameter overwrite always recreates the files.
