It wasn't actually the space consideration, as much as the time spent
transferring those gigabytes of info, which seems to be where you came

That might be possible? But it is pretty arcane, and only works with
Apache (and even the Apache folks don't like it). If you moved to a
different host down the road, you might end up with a different
server, too. To my mind, handling this sort of thing in the
application itself, where the most knowledge is *and* where it can be
made more obvious what is going on, is much better. But then we begin
to talk about application design/development...
