    "Does negotation" - bah, that's not an answer, just an handwave.
    (No offense, Dean.)  Will it find a .html before .cgi?  What about
    .shtml?  If the order isn't clearly deterministic and documentable,
    I think there's a definite need for some way to specify the order
    (w/o resorting to a .var file).
