Subject RE: server config directory patch
Date Fri, 05 Jan 2001 14:53:38 GMT
New feature, new side effects...

What about a new rule?  All files in a config directory must begin
and end with an alpha or digit.  This might take care of the vast
majority of these problems, and allow operators to mv t.conf to
_backup.conf, and intentionally disable a section of their config?

If we're ignoring ".files" we might also want to avoid other common 
editor backup files like "files~" and "#files#" and probably a few others.
