I'm working on different branches of code. I have the different branches 
installed on the remote server in different directories. When I switch 
between working on different branches I have to keep going in and editing 
the paths to the remote directories, and also my local directories, since I 
keep my local repositories of the different branches in different 
directories on my own computer as well...

I suppose you could fix it up so there is a system-default set of directory 
paths, and then allow it to be overridden per project. That would work for 
my case, at least, and wouldn't change the current behavior?

OK...I still have to install the updated version on the remote 
server...uggg...Linux installs are not my strong suit.

No problem. I should've done it sooner. It's been bugging me (hahaha...pun) 
for a while now.
