[REBOL] Re: IOS: Folder rights

It's not simply a matter of changing and publishing the registry. If you make changes to the local registry, it skews the sync details and at worst everything is resynced. Changes to the registry must be made through the Serve API (the 'send-server command) and of course individual fileset rights apply.

That's the ability to create new filesets, including those of desktop folders.

I think that's how it is at this stage. - Chris
