I'm looking for a filesystem-based solution to archive signed
documents. The main requirement of this is that it be write-once, and
that files once written cannot be deleted or changed.

filesystem thinks it's on a write-once medium ). I'm considering
countering this problem using a fuse-based filesystem which basicly
refuses to delete or modify exisiting files, but it seems a bit of an
Does anyone know of any cleaner solution?
