I do not care deeply either, as there always is "config -f $file" if
somebody wants to write into a specific location.

But if you do something that is different from a straight-and-dumb
conversion from access(A, B) to (A ? access(A, B) : -1), the
conversion is bound to be questioned by somebody in 2 years "isn't
this a misconversion?".  If you did that on purpose, a comment to
explain why it is not a misconversion would help them understand the
reasoning behind it.
