I'm not so sure about the patch for this.  I'd almost rather see a
separate repository implementation that was read-only rather than
impementing WritableRepository on a file system that can't write.  I
would be fine with your recommendation, but I'm not too happy with
having a read-only WriteableRepository for 1.0.  Think there's
anything we can do in the short term?
