It was turned off, until I figured out (i.e. re-read the documentation) that
it could be done relative to the project, so not a danger of deleting /. If
there were any '..' entries in the path it was rejected. Crude, but
hopefully "good enough". So, right now it is enabled.

Yup, I agree. We ought add it to JIRA. We'd be removing an issue for folks
that is quiet obscure, and no new user ought need to know such things.
