	The syntax is veto files = slash-list,
	where a slash list is something like 

 	It's a "list of files not to allow the client to 
	see when listing a directory's contents". 
	That means user's can't find them in
	a directory, and in principle can't read
	or write them.

	This is not perfect: you might be able
	to open a file with an absolute path to
	infect it, but you can't search for it
	so the latter makes it hard for virii
	to spread.
