This API is ambiguous. What does it mean for ^read-only? In UDF you have
following access types: overwritable, rewritable, writeonce, readonly,
pseudo-overwritable, unknown.

So you would need to know to which R/W access type to switch
(overwritable, rewritable, writeonce or pseudo-overwritable).

With information of media type, you could be able to guess correct
access type. But for UDF images stored in VFS there is no media
information. Also you can have uncommon setup, e.g. usage of CD-R
writeonce setup on CD-R/W disc. So "autodetection" of media type would
not work always correctly.

So I think that it would be better to have following API:

udftune --access-type=<new_access_type>


udftune --change-access-type=<new_access_type>

I understand that you would like to have similar API as tune2fs, but UDF
settings are too different from ext*.
