NTFS write support is available up to a certain version of NTFS, at
which point MS changed NTFS a little bit and write support can no longer
be considered stable.
Actually no, that's wrong.
The bottom line is.. as far as I read it.. read-only is totally
supported... write support is supported in the following case...
modification of a file (doesn't) affect the file size.
