I don't need to be able to script them back, since I make a DB dump
BEFORE I remove the write permissions. I can restore them by restoring
the DB ;) Which I will eventually do.

No it's actually quite simple. Drupal contains an entry for each
uploaded file. IOW I can use this command to see which files belong to fdo:

echo "select filepath from files;" | sudo mysql -N fdo_db

And files which don't have entries, well those I can copy to all locations.

It certainly looks like OSGeo. And the idea is that the new theme will
be called osgeo, but will have modifiable elements like the logo, and
slogan, etc. And thus will be customizable for each site, and each site
will have the same osgeo "look"
