Ability to lock VM from accidental actions
|Category:||Core & System|
It would be nice to have an ability to lock a VM to prevent it from accidential deletion / alternation.

Also, as suggested by Ricardo Duarte in the list:
"One feature I would like to see would be a "recycle bin".
Instead of deleting instances and their disks immediately after they terminate you could delay the actual operation to a different time, and allow the user to recover the instance."
Although the implementation is different the goal is the same, do not accidentally lose VMs.

Seems this is being popular lately. A similar request from #2670:
We, FermiCloud have been using onevm delete in a different way
by asking for user's confirmation
since one user accidentally deleted a VM that was not meant to be deleted.
I thought this could be useful to others too.
Adding the issue as related to this one, to keep the discussion here.
