C-M-y Behavior for write-file? #2092

I love ivy, but sometimes it's behaviour isn't ideal for every situation. Thankfully in "find-file" I can hit C-M-y and edit the full path. However, this doesn't work for "write-file". And actually I often wish to do things like modify the middle of a path, an action which can be cumbersome in ivy.

Use case, I have a file at:
I want to write it to
This task is much easier if I can use the vanilla emacs style of editing the path.

So, how difficult would to be to have the same C-M-y behaviour in write-file?

Thanks, C-M-y will now work with write-file.
