Auditing filesystems for Linux?

Does anyone know of any Linux-based filesystem that does file-level
auditing and logs based on username?  Does ext2/3 do such auditing
(stock or with patches)?  I would like a filesystem that can be told to
audit and log file deletions and log the username that deleted the file
(similar to auditing on NTFS).

I know, I should be using file permissions to prevent this type of
deletion from occurring, but in order for the database/application that
we are running to operate correctly, file permissions have to be set
-rw-rw-r--.  Since all files have those permissions, anyone in a
particular group can write to a file and therefore can delete the file
should they want to, or fat finger a command and delete it accidentally.

I've Googled on this query, but have yet to find any relevant
information.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
