The agenda is not read-only for this command.  The current "," modifies
both the agenda and the source org file to change the priority.  In
org-mode, this modification is made by "C-c ,".  If agenda were
read-only I wouldn't have made the suggestion.  What tripped me up is
that the key combination that I use to change priority in org-mode
didn't work in agenda-mode.  In earlier versions of org mode, up to
7.8.11 the "C-c ," did change the priority in agenda mode.

Since the priority is already displayed as part of the line in the
agenda, I don't see the priority of having another command that 
displays it in the minibuffer.

An equally good fix is to have both "," and "C-c ," make the priority
modifcation.  (Basically change the key-map so that both "," and "C-c ,"
map to org-agenda-priority.)
