Works perfectly. Also gives the same error reports when you do a 'vos
examine' on it. Which is how this feature request got started.
Since then there's been further discussion here that leads me to
think a production read-only volume is a good idea. Think about
forensics, locking out users in cases of potential but unproven
abuse, avoiding per-file callbacks, etc, etc...
