You said it David. With this option we will be able to provide multiple
server from one install which is just not possible atm which means
that BF1942 are a nightmare to support. One thing that's potentially
missing now that I think of it is to specify a distinct log directory.
i.e. In our system we always log to the logs dir under the users config
dir. So a +logDirectory would still be good to have even if its based
below +overlayPath.
