How do I change the downloader path?

How do I change the downloader path from the default of “/downloader”?  I made my admin path different so it’s harder for someone who knows I’m running Magento to find it, but they can easily go to /downloader and follow the “Return to Administration” link there.  :-(

Hi atang,

Many thanks for pointing this out - was not even aware that you could access the downloader without going through the admin first.

As, unlike admin, this is a real directory, how about restricting access to the downloader by .htaccess ?

Thanks!
