So this is *fine* behavior:

owl% cd /var/tmp
owl% ln /var/log/messages foo
owl% rm foo
override rw-r--r--  root/wheel for foo? y
rm: foo: Operation not permitted

That means I should want to create links that I can't remove.  Problem
is I don't want to be able to make things I can't remove.  Maybe it's
*fine* for you, but it's *broken* to me.
