Good thinking, this is something also Rob suggested.
I haven't had the chance to verify this specific aspect yet.
I am pessimistic about it because MW's account is
perfectly capable of writing files to the filesystem given
that the upload function works just fine. So, if there is
a problem with the account it'd have to be some sort
of impossibility to run non-MW commands. To me this
sounds a bit unlikely but it needs to be tested nevertheless.
