[geeklog-devel] Customising 1.3.8

I'm currently altering 1.3.8 to make it a little more friendly and secure
for subdir installations.  In essence, what I'm doing is:

 * moving public_html into the root directory of the GL install
 * moving all other directories (logs, backup, plugins, etc) under system
 * moving 95% of config.php to system/system.php
 * moving (and slightly) lib-common.php to system directory
 * retaining minimum 5% (ie the required info) in config.php
 * altering all public_html (and admin) to look only to config.php
 * adding two require_once statements to config.php to load
system/system.php and system/lib-common.php 
 * adding a .htaccess file to keep the system directory safe
 * updating all code to adjust to changes

The only thing is, documenting this all is a pain in the butt, as it's
pretty much a 'do what I think is right' and then run through it fixing the
errors as I find them.  So far, it's looking pretty good.
