Yes, this works for now, but you should not presume that this will continue to 
work in future versions.  We don't document or support the behavior and may
break it at any point in a future version.

In fact, as a general principle of dealing with modern operating systems, you 
shouldn't even presume that you have write permissions to that directory.
