* making directories below a certain point in the filesystem tree while
* allowing them to create files.
Because if you own the directory, you can always delete the files.
If someone owns a subdirectory, you cannot delete it.
Of course, policy dictates "Don't do that, then!". I've always wanted
something more integrated into the system.
