and gives us a way to remove this code and behavior for 8.0

it's not about "remove a feature" - it's just about a sinlg line of code 
detecting "oh, /etc" is readonly and jst disbale all of that stuff 
implicit instead break left and right and spit some pages of errors for 
each and every config file

frankly, if ATS would have  been written in PHP (yes, i know wrong 
programming language) it would have taken 5 minutes if at all to make 
that conditional without any configuration 5 years ago

it's not about whinign - it's about a broken design which could have 
been fixed years ago with *zero amount of work*
