I just added a task to STATUS, but I'm not sure that I parsed your statement
above properly. Here is what is now in STATUS:

    * mod_dir should normally redirect ALL directory requests which do
      not include a trailing slash on the URI. However, if a "notes"
      flag is set (say, via BrowserMatch), this behavior will be
      disabled for non-GET requests.

Does that match your thoughts, Ken?
