I believe the problem is that at the code level we don't know whether
the user is going to write to it or not until after the redirection
has been done.  (And indeed, they may be getting a checkout but later
wanting to write to it.)

+1, I agree, though as Aaron recently touched this redirector it could
be good to check with him too.

James, please put [merge] in your subject line (even if you're not
totally sure it should merge) so that BB will track it.  I actually
think it should track all patches; the number of things that look like
patches but are not intended to merge is pretty negligible.
