I've needed this in the past and wasn't aware there was an opinion against 
it.  I think I see the concern with SoC but surely hardcoding the path is 
as bad or worse.  Is there another solution?  Syntax aside, would it be 
better to limit access to root, current and immediate parent (which maybe 
could default to root?).
