Wow.  That's a neat application.  It would be really impressive if this all
works out to be possible.

That's a tough one.  Allowing absolute pathnames is out, too.  Stuffing it
all in together is a reasonably bad idea, especially if you don't have any
kind of access mechanism to prevent one list owner from playing with he
files of another list.  We could be rigid and define only a set number of
files for each list, but that doesn't address any sharing issues.

Perhaps the solution lies in using symlinks, with a list owner giving files
to other lists equating to the action of making a link.
