Gut instinct: disallow everything unnecessary. ,)

If nothing else, it will keep the directory structure clear, and if we
decide to use "foo" as canonical directory for fnordification we can,
without worrying about existing infratructure of non-std projects.

The other alternative is to think of /project/<name> as the
home-directory of each project, and promise them that things work as
expected as long as they have public_html, ftp, etc, but otherwise let
them play as they like in their own yard. 

...the reason I'm a bit dubious about this is that this is morally
equivalent to encouraging people to use the shell-account for actually
doing stuff...

Which brings me to a different topic: I've been using a few simple
scripts to manage linedit things, and have been thinking about making
them public after a bit of generalization, for the convenience of
other Common-lisp.net users. ...but more on this later. ;)
