direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Well, since users kept on mounting it read only on the secondary
and Linux-2.6.x allows us to prohibit read accesses, we decided
to do so.

  There are Filesystem out there that may crash the kernel when 
  mounted on a self-changing device ;)

Short answer: no
Long answer:  
 Just convince me that it I want this feature as well,
 and it might come back (as runtime configuration)
 in 0.7.11.
