Not if the master-instance's template dir is empty by default, which was 
my plan.

I.e. you only put a file there if you intend to override a shipped 
template, leave it empty if you're satisfied with the default.

And, on upgrade, assume people have overridden index.html (i.e. copy to 
root.html) but warn them that we make this assumption.
