wow, that's cool. I'm still not sure why there's not a "tunnel by
default" option somewhere.

That's cool. I'm pleased to hear the rationale and it makes total sense
to have defaults set for ultra novice users, since the actual truth is
that an expert user will simply type "cp ~/music/file
/var/www/html/music" instead. The only complaint is that it seems EASY
to make it possible to change your default behavior and costs very
little. But that's more of a philosophical question and doesn't need to
be discussed on Fedora-Test-List.
Thanks for indulging me...
