	Kind of, you can use the unix stick bit or POSIX ACLs to
achieve such behaviour, but, what would stop the user to open the
file and erase its entire content? :)

	For things like sockets and pipes and makes sense since
there is nothing inside the file, but if you are trying to
protect documents from being deleted by "bad-users" then it would
not solve your problem.

	In such scenarios, audit of the filesystem with backups
would be very helpful.
