Should encrypted modules be moved to the beta directory?

The Install Manager uses the a directory per host, which doesn't work terribly well with multiple direcories per site.

eg. Select origianl crosswire site, refresh from remote source, select beta site, refresh from remote source, go back to original, select a module - install, the original list gets replaced with the beta list, and nothing get's installed. (And if the module you wanted to install was an update, your older installed module gets deleted)

The obvious solution is to do nothing at the moment - but to keep it in mind if we want to use more different directories for different purposes. Users of beta modules are likely to be able to cope with this with no problem. Non-beta-module-testers won't have two dirs from one site (at the moment).
