I prefer that they use the extra accounts instead of a single file that 
will do all the work. This makes it so if the files get movedd around 
that the chroot() ALPHA-TEST that thes login does works correctly. If 
they use a mirror script that will get hidden/semi-hidden files then what 
good does making them that way. If I want to move around ALPHA-TEST to 
BETA-TEST then these people will have to download all of it again yet if 
they use my login then if I move the directory none of this can happen.

The question of the existence of views in the absence of anyone to hold
them is left as an exercise for the reader.  The question of the
existence of the reader is left as an exercise for the second god
coefficient.  (A discussion of non-orthogonal, non-integral polytheism
