the old versions requires that you go out of your way to "delete

bucket. That said, if you want to be extra safe, and you are willing
to put a bit of time into it, you should be able to create the access
restrictions you desire through a combination of S3 ACLs and AWS IAM
(Identity and Access Management) See the following for more details:
