Go to the Site Settings of the root of your Site Collection. Click
Advanced Permissions. From the Settings drop down click Permission
Levels. Click Add a permission  Level. Create a new permission level

"Delete Items." You can look at one of the existing ones for guidance.

addpermissionpolicy" to create the new permission level and "stsadm.exe
-o managepermissionpolicylevel" to modify the permissions that level
has. I think Gary Lapointe has some operations that deal with them at
