Without actually digging up the code, I'm pretty confident this is a correct

I'd say the latter. Does including the local mods give you anything?
OTOH, implementing this extra step shouldn't be too hard I think, so if we want
this is shouldn't be a problem. (The cmdline client would still default
to BASE like for cat and ls.)

Care to provide a patch for either of the above? :_)
