It doesn't appear that one user can dot-dot-slash their way into
another other user's directory.  Even if they guess the path, they are
asked for authentication again if they get it right.  User1 not being
defined in User2/acl_users, and restricting User2/content to owner
makes it hard for User1 to access User2's content.

Thanks for the reminder though,
