No, he did't write junk -- he wrote something that may have
result different than he intended.  Not the same thing.
Someone may *want* to add a keyword to the end of an existing
IndexOptions statement.  I don't buy it.  :-)  It's also
different from the behaviour of the Options directive with
the same syntactic form.

It is with the patch.

No, it uses RAW_ARGS because it never got converted to
ITERATE.  (Probably based on the Options code, which is
also RAW_ARGS.)  ITERATE is perfectly reasonable for this
directive, in both its original and modified forms.  I'll
probably fix that later.  I'm on a clean-up-mod_autoindex
kick at the moment.
