Monotone currently also fails for missing files which are somewhat similar to unreadable files. Perhaps we should still fail but with a nicer message rather than a hard crash.

Steps to reproduce (assuming you have a copy of a mtn db laying around):

$ mtn co -d monotone.mtn net.venge.monotone mtn
$ cd mtn
$ chmod 100 NEWS
$ mtn status
mtn: fatal: Botan::Stream_IO_Error: Botan: I/O error: DataSource_Stream: Failure opening NEWS
mtn: this is almost certainly a bug in monotone.
mtn: please send this error message, the output of 'mtn version --full',
mtn: and a description of what you were doing to monotone-devel@nongnu.org.
mtn: wrote debugging log to /Users/tommyd/mtn/_MTN/debug
mtn: if reporting a bug, please include this file

We certainly should just ignore unreadable files in the workspace and print out a warning at most.
