That does work for me. (to be precise, using    include 
   (I didn't have a folder called 'includes', but had one imaginatively 
called 'subfolder' :-)

(Sadly, I can't get the equivalent to work for an add-on domain at the 
root level, but that's not too surprising).

Why would you get an FTP error ?    Are you sure this was while running 
index.irev ?
Or is there some other part of your workflow that is doing ftp of these 
files ?

Is the error message from the on-rev client debugger ?  If not - give it 
a try and see what it says.
