Making -d work correctly in client/server mode is much harder than it
appears at first glance.  There are some comments in the code about what
the problems are and some possible approaches to solving them, but
they've been there for quite a long time.  Changing directory to the
parent directory and using a simple directory name in -d is the only
solution at present.

So why don't you let the developer choose where the code goes instead of
doing it in your script?
