Seems like a pretty decent article. Glad you forwarded it since I don't
read Slashdot. ;-)

One could call that either a massive security hole or a feature. Seems
like I recall a conversation or two on this list where indexing files
not available via the web was a desirable feature.
What I think would be nice is a Perl filesystem indexer which is aware
of permissions. Should be easy to implement a comprehensive filesystem
indexer using DirTree.pl as a base. That would be my preference rather
than adding ever-increasing hacks to Swish-e itself.
