depends on what you think that "writing" is.. if you want to distinguish 
between creating and deleting, the answer should be no, i think. but if 
you want to "write to" an entry (meaning you want to change some of its 
attributes) thats a completely different thing. access handling can be 
compared fairly straight forward to UNIX file permissions in this case.. 
if you have write access for the directory, you can add and delete all 
files there.
but you can change the _content_ of a file (if the file permissions 
allow it) also if you do not have write permissions to the directory. 
what means you may modify the file, but not delete it.. (which is 
possibly what you want)
