Why is it unpractical? If you know the exact pattern to replace it should  
be easy enough to do this using a script.

Firstly, all Zope URLs are case-sensitive. Directory Views are nothing  
more than storages for Zope objects in the file system. Secondly, you need  
to do more than just register the directory in ZCML. This just makes them  
available for the ZODB object of the File Directory View. Once you've  
registered the new directory you can assign it to the relevant Filesystem  
Directory View through its properties, or indeed using GenericSetup.
