If I was running the server, I'd care.  :-)  You have confirmed my
presumption that that is the case, thought.  Might be worth adding a line to
the mod_includes doco.

For that matter, linking the directory down into the other directories would work
just as well, as long as FollowSymLinks was turnes on...

Note that I'm trying to *avoid* the includables directory being directly
referenceable from the outside of the server; it sounds like your suggestion
would have the opposite effect; no?

Greatly appreciate the prompt reply, BTW.
