I have the opportunity to start using Rails at work in a legacy
environment. The one catch is that the "public" directory has to be
called "share". Is this possible in a Rails app?

The code is kept in CVS which doesn't version symbolic links as far as
I know. And I can't require creating a symbolic link after each
checkout because it isn't just me working on the code.

I would like to use mongrel if possible but if I can only rename
"public" with webrick that would be fine too. I'm trying to escape the
hell of legacy. Always at least one catch.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
