I think Greg is on the right track: ask the workflow questions at this
point, and determine how much of this is necessary and helpful.
The point about "explicitly map these folders" is a good idea, even if it
sounds like it is not extensible. ("You mean I'll have to re-edit the view
for every new folder?")
- The points for doing it this way are, that you don't want new
folders/areas without knowing about them.
- The argument against looks like this: "you want me to re-edit that
thing every time, for something that could be automated?"
I would remind you that any wild card that looks like
"//something/.../inc/..." can take some cpu-time to sort through. This
construct, in a protection table, can be a problem for server performance;
in a client spec, it might still be less than a bed of roses.
