Basically because if you do commit on a sandbox and you can't write to
certain subdirectories or files, the whole operation should succeed and
only the commit on the protected subdirectories should fail. If you
made it fatal you would end up with sandboxes that it was impossible to
commit in even though you had write access (the same as with update..
it's the same test in fact so you can't change one without changing the
-q commit is an odd combination... surely you want as much information
as possible about a commit? It's always good practice to verify that
it's done what you've expected.
