Isn't that kinda nuclear???

       A file with the `i' attribute cannot be  modified:
       it  cannot  be  deleted or renamed, no link can be
       created to this file and no data can be written to
       the  file.   Only  the superuser or a process pos-
       sessing the CAP_LINUX_IMMUTABLE capability can set
       or clear this attribute.
