:I might be wrong (and have misunderstood your reply) but I think he
:asked whether it would be possible to disallow a user to access the
:historical data (even if it is present on the disk). As I have not
:studied the code I might be wrong, but should it not be quite easy to
:create some switch which determines whether a @@0x<timestamp> will be
:treated as a normal filename or the name or not?

    Yes, that would be a simple mount flag to tell HAMMER to only allow
    the @@ extension for the superuser.  The default could be to only allow
    @@ for root or for files owned by the user in question.
