Well, i wasn't thinking so much about that. I was more concerned with
whether or not we need to be able to perform migrations without even
having to look at file names. Some people might have some folder they
think is cleverly hidden in Windows when it actually isn't containing
files where even the filenames might be private...i'm sure you can
think of at least one example of that situation. Do we expect that
people are smart enough to not hand us a computer where that kind of
thing could be an issue?
