One of the regulars on this list mentioned 'copying'.  That reminded 
me that the best current tools I know of for manually transferring 
files in and out of the XO datastore are copy-from-journal and 
copy-to-journal (scripts originally written by users).  Note that 
copy-to-journal requires the mime-type of the file to be supplied.
