Not clear exactly what your asking. The process which will execute the
'touch' will be a sub-process of the process running Emacs. This will
typically be the user who executes Emacs and willl have the same
permissions and access rights as the user running Emacs. There is no
'emacs' system and the privileges will be the same as the user who runs
Emacs. This is assuming a 'normal' installation, not some unusual setup
which uses setuid or similar to alter the way Emacs runs or the
ownership of files in a directory etc.
