<gulp>  If the little icons on each line turn into subrequests, you've
got me, for sure.  

I don't think many admins would intentionally turn on autoindexing on
such a directory - imagine navigating thru this puppy with your favorite
browser.  But if they did, I'm sure that they would rather see output
than seg faults.

As I think I said, I don't mind a superior solution.  But the last time
I checked, it didn't exist.  Seg faults in the core whenever you use
something as popular as mod_include just don't cut it.
