Jason is the maintainer, with a bit of Chuck's and my help.
I don't think that chmod +w is a good idea in general. I don't like
to see tools fiddeling with permissions without asking.
We're working on a new release of rebase anyway. This new release
checks for writability and prints just a warning without stopping
dead in its track:
/usr/bin/foo.dll: skipped because not writable
That should be ok, shouldn't it? Otherwise, what we can do is to open
the file with FILE_FLAG_BACKUP_SEMANTICS. This would allow you to
rebase DLLs without write permissions if you have admin privileges.
