This is about protecting me from accidental saves.
There are a dozen or so separate files. I want a new "main" stack for
every editing day, but most of the others don't usually get changed.
So blocking the directory when a date change is detected neatly solves the
problem--but livecode apparently overrides this.

if something is locked in the OS livecode should not be unlocking it.
I suppose I can trap saveStackRequest, but I shouldn't have to for this.
