In belatedly reading a few posts (you guys are very prolific!), I 
came across this, and it begs a question...

With many of the newer systems having very strong protections, such 
that areas of the computer that were once usable are now "locked", is 
this location a good place to put things that the application will 
need to be able to modify without running into permissions issues?

Permission locks have been a bugger to deal with, espcecially if the 
user is not the admin.  Would this location transcend the problemo?
