Sorry if this is off track but one wonders if you need to have clients
upload to a production box with FP. Can you set up a staging server so
that clients can upload and view content then give them a simple admin
page where they can push a button that sets off an rsync script to the
production box. Your production machine could have all kinds of jails
and fancy stuff but no FP extentions. Any old piece of junk could be
pressed into service as a staging box. At least that way you could do
away with FP on the production box and apache could be jailed for life.
