There could be good reasons for having read-only files, say data is
archived. Thus, shouldn't you rather explicitly check whether either the
owner is not you or the owner is root? Potentially also the group
membership. [No idea how these concepts work in Emacs on windows].
(nth 2 (file-attributes "/etc/profile" 'string)) => root

You could use (concat "/sudo::" path), but maybe it will act differently
You people at the NSA are becoming my new best friends!
