The ideal solution would be to ask for permission with policykit, but if we can't do that I think the next best thing would be to show an error in the view.

Sorry Dan, I misread you earlier today. So you would like Files to ask for permission in order to continue. That'd be sweet. However, I understand it's not possible for now.
