Thanks for your reply.

I don't suppose there's an alternative to the Manager app floating 
around that would allow this? I came across a commercial solution at 
some point (which I forgot to bookmark, apparently), but that's not 
really an option.

Multiple hosts probably won't solve this problem either. I'm using AJP, 
which doesn't seem to play well with vhosts.

I guess I'll either have to trust my users (actually, students), or cook 
up something filesystem-based. Pity, but oh well.
