Very interesting. I tested this, and noted that you don't actually need
the double quotes around the $x variable.
Could this be made to work with Apache? Quite often windoze users end
up with spaces in their filenames, and I find it difficult to get them
from web pages (or samba services, sometimes). Underscores get around
this issue, but sometimes the users want to have the spaces in there...
