Well that works on my test machine. Unfortunately, in the actual  
application, what I need to do is point Apache to an existing  
directory on a production server which contains the images I need to  
use. Moving or copying the tens of thousands of images to the Web  
server isn't an option. Installing another copy of Apache on the  
production server isn't an option and opening up the permissions of  
the entire production server hierarchy to the world isn't an option.

Is there no way to target a specific folder without exposing the  
entire hierarchy it exists in? Could this be worked around with a  
custom module?
