   Can we marry this to content-negotiation, though?  I.e., if a request
   comes along for "mary" and "mary.html" doesn't exist but "mary.shtml" 
   does, the .shtml will be dished out... it'll help encourage people to 
   make links to the objects without their content-type extensions, which is 
   definitely a good thing.

Actually, I think that if MultiViews is turned on, this already works.
(Incidentally, replacing foo.html with something called foo.html.shtml
(yuck!) should cause the server to respond to requests for the former
by dishing out the latter, processing includes as it goes ---
technically, it's extremely elegant, with the awkward exception that
the cascade of filename suffixes is ugly as hell).
