My thought was there would be a file: 
public_html/admin/install/rescue.php. The user can't follow a link 
but they had to get to the install.php file so they should be able to 
type in the rescue url.

When you hit that url, it lets you modify some key config settings. 
It would be a big security hole, obviously. But geeklog already tells 
you to delete the install directory when install is complete. So it 
isn't that big a hole.
