Option to omit "File is busy - skipping"-behaviour

Talk, speculate, discuss, pontificate. As long as it pertains to Hazel.

I'd like to have an option to run over the "File ... is busy. Skipping for now." behaviour.
MSWord keeps the document open within an editing session, but i´d like to copy the file after every modification.
An operating system "cp" does the work, so it is no problem to save in Word and initialize the copy process - if Hazel wouldn`t complain ...

Any suggestions ?

Thanks in advance

No way to do that and probably won't change. The problem is that Hazel can't know what the program is doing to the file so any operation on it (even just matching against it) can catch things in an interim/inconsistent state.
