Wow! Certainly there is a need (otherwise I would have state "r"
:-). Jigsaw needs write access to these files. What you can do
however, is have each Jigsaw have its own config (in fact, from my
point of view, that would be the only legitimate reason for running
multiple Jigsaw in the same space, but maybe I am missing something
here)
