That was basically the suggestion I made: that DrRacket will try to
write a temp file to a directory to determine if it's writeable,
regardless of where the directory is.

Robby hesitates with doing that, and said that he prefers to do it
only if there's a concrete need.

I hesitate with wanting such behavior in the main collects tree, since
doing automagical compilations there seems like dangerous.
