SPLCTL is kinda like ALLOBJ for spool files - anyone with it can do
anything to any spool file (since these aren't really objects, but
records in a series of files).  Unfortunately, if the user has SPLCTL
and access to a command line, they can get at any spool file.  You could
take away command line access and write or buy some sort of front end
for spool file handling (does Help System ROBOT do that?), but that
might be impractical for an operator.  Best bet is to either back up
important spool files (using QUSRTOOL or products like LXIspl from LXI)
or just get them printed and off the system.
