SQL Server has the ability to execute commands, but how does it
know that "g:\ftp\users\blah" is actually on some other machine
and not itself? UNCs where created to resolve that, yet Rob has
specifically removed that from Serv-U. Its like we are trying to
re-invent the wheel here, which is no fun. :(
