  Your proposal also massively increases processing time, because EVERY request
  would have to perform a mod_dir lookup walking the directory, to determine 
  *if* the file listed is -the- directory match.  Multiviews makes this a total
  nightmare scenario.

  The converse solution isn't so bad.  If you prefer to have

    http://example.com/foo/
    http://example.com/foo/index.html

  both map to the singular resource

    http://example.com/foo/index.html

  by responding to http://example.com/foo/ external redirect to .../index.html
  it would not hurt all performance (except with the external redirect roundtrip
  processing on exact hits to .../foo/).  HOWEVER, mapping to index.html may 
  interfere with mod_dav directory properties, so you must be quite careful 
  in crafting any such patch, and test it thoroughly with mod_dav running.
