I like that idea, primarily because it seems cleaner to know that 
installing or upgrading pmwiki *never* writes to local/. Exceptions suck 
in this context :-)

I don't suppose it'd be workable to exclude the .htaccess from the CVS
installation, but include in the tar-ball version?  (I'm thinking that 
people going with the CVS version are more likely to know what they are 
doing etc).

Anyway, guess this is a typical "much ado about nothing" :-)
