Oh yes, right, I forgot.

I guess I chose my solution to get rid of the

  (yes-or-no-p
   (format
    "File %s is write-protected; try to save anyway? "
    (file-name-nondirectory
     buffer-file-name)))

query every time when saving.  With my solution, I have to toggle the
read-only flag only once and avoid the annoying `yes-or-no-p'.


Thanks,

Michael.
