It works fine now, sorry.

I've seen and I'll probably include it in the main code.

No problem, just tell me how to do that, I'm not a Zope permission master 
at all.

FYI I've rewritten the little thing as an external method, 
here's what works now:

	cd, pwd
	cp, mv, rm
	cut, copy, paste
	save, discard (versions, but still untested)
	chown (even with -R, doesn't work yet but I'm on it just now)
I expect to have the man command work tomorrow or later this evening,
as well as some more commands, and then I'll upload it somewhere for
people to test.

Note to DC folks: if only manage_restart didn't redirected to
manage_main but to URL0 !!!
