It means always create  a new file. Don't append and if the file exists,
don't overwrite, but throw a FileExistsError Exception.

I think, it could be clarified a bit. It could be stated as "Exclusively
create and write a new file. Unlike 'w', if the file already exists, 'x'
mode will raise a FileExistsError exception."
