In our case its not a global directory but a server instance based
one, but I do know organisations which do. Your example is perfect
where are the current implementation uses "Log" we give the user
access to "logs" a subtle diff. If you have time that's great if not I'll
just add a special case to our BF1942 module which symlinks
logs to Logs so no biggy you've done the killer with +overlayPath
which we will all love you forever for :).
