Special topics

Tigran: why do we still pin permanent files and if there is a reason for that, why is this not off by default?

There are corner cases where this makes sense (think, in a Resilience setting, of the situation where you're not reading a file for an hour or so but know that a job will read it later on), but we agree that the default can be set to off.
