I wonder if it was possible (and desireable) to implement means to
protect data objects (and functions) from overwriting them. So for

> x <- 5
> protect(x)
> x <- 8
Error: x is read only

Or would that be against the philosophy of R to be compatible to S?!

Just a RFC ;-)


ps. Your probably know the situations that let you think of such a
feature :-( ...
