'subtree rooted at the base directory', the *base* directory is 
selected by an option in the file.c source (near top). This *base* 
directory is then treated by the MOO as a kind of 'root', -ie it can not 
move back up the directory tree... and yes, the base directory could be 
the OS' idea of root if you so desired.
