If "Project Security" is switched on for a VSS repo, you get four levels
of ACLs - Read, Checkout/In, Add/Delete, and Destroy. By default, I
believe only the Admin user gets destroy rights. Certainly none of my
VSS users have it.

I've found it best to be very sparing with my use of destroy. I'd
sooner archive an existing repo and start a new one than destroy a
"dead" project. You never know when you might be called on to produce
that "dead" code. Basically, the only time I destroy anything is when
someone has an "ooops" moment and checks in something that they
shouldn't have, and then only when it hasn't gone into a labeled release
