Amazing! I did just try it and that actually works. You can use a PHP 
script to replace a directory. I thought there had to be something that 
easy, but I've never seen it done that way.

I think what Ken last suggested amounts to the same thing, but I 
couldn't quite see how his example actually worked.

It is indeed pretty obscure. I wonder if this is documented anywhere?
