Apologies if this is obvious--I haven't downloaded and tried this module
yet. But would it not be possible to specify a separate directory
altogether and make it serveable (<Directory ...> ... Allow from all ...)?
If so perhaps it'd be easy to add this as a configurable parameter.

In general it is a fine idea to not make the DocumentRoot writeable by the
web user. In fact, I believe it is a good policy that the web user should
be able to write only to a small subset of controlled locations.
