The problem is that I may not know in advance how many I'll need. That's
especially true with a site where users can supply content arbitrarily, such
as anything with a forum.
If we want to have an integrated staging/live setup, then an alternate URL set
would be more flexible. Eg, anything prefixed with /staging/ is the staging
version of whatever comes after it. (I'm not entirely sure how one would do
that, but it would be a better plan, and easier to mirror back and forth,

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea,
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it." -- Thomas
