Well, when a user asks compiler to compile, doesn't it also mean
"and whichever intermediate file(s) are wrong or missing, try to 
(re-)create them automatically"?

What's the point of being so carefull about unreadable PPUs?
If a user have some very important PPUs s/he care about, then s/he

- set read-only file permissions for these PPUs,
- move source files away from these PPUs to avoid auto recompilation,
- make backups as necessary.
