Protecting files from deletion

Comments and questions related to the Enterprise Control Language

I am aware of the protect option using #WORKUNIT, but is there anything to protect logical files on the Thor from being deleted? I realize that in a Dev environment, this may not be generally advisable, but some co-workers are having issues with files being deleted without notification.

I have very VAGUE memories of someone mentioning code signing in relation to protecting files from malicious actors, but nothing in the Programmers' Guide is hinting at that use.

Perhaps ... lFile.html?

What is not mentioned there is that only the user who protects a file can then unprotect it.
