Provide a "Don't automatically discard view indexes" advanced database property

In addition to idea ==> https://domino-ideas.hcltechsw.com/ideas/DOMINO-I-144

I would also like to see an option at the database level that tells Domino not to automatically discard view indexes (it would still allow an administrator to manually delete or rebuild an index if required).

The "discard index" functionality can be useful at times but it can also cause issues and user complaints. Functionality was added (in DBMT?) so that certain key indexes in mailfile databases are not discarded. so the functionality is already there. We just really need to expand that concept so admins / developers can apply it to applications if needed.
