This is a function Axiom implements as a C library function
(src/lib/cfuns-c.c) to determine the write access property of a file.  
I think I've documented that.

In the file cfuns-c.c I mentioned above, I've put a reference material on the
topic.  See the comment above the axiom_has_write_access function.
