This sort of thing can be valuable, but has it's limitations. It's done
by making rm do something other that what it normally does, but it will
have no effect whatsoever on programs that call the system unlink()
function. It'll only help you recover from errant shell scripts, or
programs that actually exec rm via the shell.
