I have some projects that are built and maintained by one person but
are for general use. We'd like to prevent user's from deleting these
libraries with --clean. While we could change the permissions to
disable deleting the files, this would lead to incorrect or ambiguous
messages from the build system that we'd rather suppress. I'd prefer
a solution that allows us to specify whether the --clean should be
honored on a per Jamfile basis.
For instance, if the user says bjam --v2 --clean at the top level of
our system, we want the clean option honored for all libraries except
those we explicitly disable.
Does anyone know of a way to do this?
