Larry:

You do have a point, and I concede. There are plenty of ways to screw up.
I've tried some myself!

  Here I must disagree.  A new programmer or contractor is going to be much
more
careful than the long time programmer who is 'Sure' that he is in the
correct
library.  

  Where I have had influence in setting up programmer environments I have
always
used Two user profiles.  One authorized for programming and to READ
production
data, and the other authorized to update production data.  There is a great
feeling of relief when you get 'not authorized' to DELETE FROM SOMETABLE
WHERE
SOMFLD='X' because you just realized your library list was not what you
thought
it was!!
