That web site is fairly old, in fact, two years old, the best source of
information today is:

We have been discussing that particular issue, and as soon as we have
some spare cycles we will have a setup that will work that way.

In fact your recommendation is interesting, because we were struggling

The reason we are struggling has to do with things like the user
directories, how do we determine the toplevel Global.asax and web.config
for an arbitrary directory structure?
