Basically, yes. I can connect to ALL my domains with this file-system... 
through the MAIN "spencerp.net" account FTP informations.. so if I go 
onto another domain, did the "update automatically (File-system) 
stuff... I could just enter my MAIN "spencerp.net" FTP informations.. 
and it'd connect.. because THAT domain is ALSO under the "spencerp.net" 
MAIN account...

So, I could be in admin/ panel for say "my-domain-number4", go to 
plugins section, click "update automatically" link, fill in FTP HOST, 
FTP USER, FTP PASS that I normally use on main account "spencerp.net" 
and it SHOULD WORK just fine.. I did it on VB and it works... I was just 
ASSUMING before, with the new "FIX COMMIT", that it would require each 
domain to have it's OWN FTP account / access stuff.. but it don't.

I'd reply to this, but my brain is SO confused as is, with all these 
various issues and stuff I'm trying to figure out.. LOL!
