Unix system version clobbering

    In LMFS there are permission bits for reaping and deleting.  There are
    no equivalent protections in NFS.

Symbolics could simulate them by creating an auxiliary property list
file (I think Macintoshes do something similar when they use Unix file
systems, to simulate the resource fork of a Macintosh file).

This would also permit you to implement the user-definable file
properties if you wanted.
