Deploy Remotely with Different Path

I've done some searches and can't seem to find the answer, so I thought I'd ask rather than further bang my head against the wall.

Is there any means to remotely deploy a WAR file to Apache 5.5.x using the Manager and specify the path? I've tried following the example in their how-to without much luck (I keep getting a failure message) and have taken enough of a peek at the source for the HTMLManager servlet class to see why I can't pass a path parameter to that mechanism. Just was curious if I have to basically create a custom version of their servlet to do this or if there's an easier way.
