That this will cause Mhonarc to overwrite any file in the specified

sent the archive to a directory far up the tree, that is *not* on any 
search path for executables. I've also considered using excludeext to 
exclude any executables from being archived. Do I understand that option 
correctly, in thinking that's what it will do?

Yes, usename blindly overwrites, which I should probably change.
However, depending on your web server, operating system, and system
configuration, it can be exploited to place system-type files.
