@HulaHoop

Dug around on how to modify XML settings on the fly via cli. Other options were too messy or required manual editing which are useless for scripting.

sudo virt-xml Whonix-Workstation --edit --disk readonly=on

readonly takes values on/off
I am not sure whonix-libvirt is the ideal place for detection of live mode and the adjustment of image write options. Perhaps the grub-live package is a better place.
However wouldn't doing this break VM usage since ro-mode-init is not our first choice for using it?
