No, this is major oops. There is a list of 'write' commands, and a
comment to the affect that the list is checked against, but
unfortunately the code that should reference it doesn't.

It's a one-line fix, and I just checked it in:

def check_command_authorization (self, command):
if command in self.write_commands and self.read_only:
return 0
return 1

Many thanks for pointing this out, Robin!
