"write proctecting" a file

Hi all.

How do i proctect a versioned file from ever being modified?

The case is a data file received from a external party. I want to submit it to
the repository and keep it "as is" from then on. Particularly protect it from
accidental modification.

One way that comes to mind is lock the file after check-in and never release
the lock. But is there a more explicit way to protect the file?

Something like a "immutable" property which results in a big fat warning when
someone tries to commit changes to that file.
