Still very useful. Though I'm not going to argue why, because it's plain obvious.

Well, if it can be achieved by other means, it is ambiguous command, and can be removed.

ok, until no one finds a good point to keep this feature, i removed from next beta.

when loading a VFS file containing such feature enabled, this message will appear

This VFS file uses the "Visible only to anonymous users" feature.
This feature is not available anymore.
You can achieve similar results by restricting access to @anonymous,
then enabling "List protected items only for allowed users".
