+1. Oh, by the way, I remembered why having the
extension-stripping-and-matching stuff is a good idea:

If you're using MultiViews, and have a file named foobar.html, which you
refer to as "foobar", and someone tried to access "Foobar", mod_speling
won't find it, because it won't find anything matching that
spelling. With the extension-munging, it would locate "foobar.html". Not
perfect, but I ran into that problem when I first wrote the module.

I'd like to see it in modules/standard, with all the rest of the ones we
distribute that don't need many files.
