      warning when trying to save a file which is actually read-only (from
      ACLs) but Vim thought was writeable, than to be told a writeable file
      is read-only.

      in C++ Builder, so while reliable ACL support would be nice, its
      absence isn't something that heinous (at least on MS Windows
