I would like to see XBitHack (and other directives, like ScriptAlias)
deprecated, with explanations of how to accomplish its functionality in a
cleaner way.  For example, for the desired effect that "XBitHack On" would
have, I'd suggest .shtml as a filename extension and referring to files
internally minus filename extensions - that way you can rename a file from
foo.html to foo.shtml without breaking links.
