If it is something you can make with no troubles I for one would be a 
very happy person. I'm sure that this would be a feature that could be 
integrated into some future version of IC. I can imagine that it is 
something that could come in handy for other users as well as many of us 
would like to protect their work in some way. Stories of ripped pictures 
by a competitor are known by all of us I guess.
