Mark, would it be possible and desirable to give fix_url a check mode
which would warn about what it wants to do?  Ie, so it could be run by
default at startup or something like that, so there'd be a warning in
the logs?  While I'm thinking weird things, how about running
checkperms in check mode at startup?

Sure, there would be a warning at startup for people who are smarter
than we are, but if they're that smart, they can figure out how to
defeat the warning themselves. ;-)  If they're *not* that smart, maybe
they shouldn't be using a configuration that bothers our check
scripts. ;-)  Yeah, there's the symlinks issue with checkperms, but
maybe we should make checkperms check mode follow the symlinks.  WDOT?
