Sure, I'd be happy to test such a solution, thanks. I've been assuming
that there will be a single encrypted directory name to replace much
of a the current deeply nested path. e.g.
 .../4E56FFEC .If so, will there also be some way for clients to
"unmangle" such hashes back into (full) feature lists? Also musing
over the possible interactions when trying to construct human readable
install paths using <location> in install rules.
