Certainly that style of operation is pretty annoying, but it does have
an advantage:  you can make the equivalent of "tla changes" really fast
without too much work or cleverness (since you have a handy list of
exactly what you need to check, and it's only as big as the user's
working set).

I'd just chmod your whole tree to be writable, and commit a one-time
"Change perms" changeset to reflect that change.
