I agree.  Can we move logo and presume it's safely in /icons/, or should we
go and declare

<Directory "@@ServerRoot@@/error/images">
    RemoveOutputFilter Includes

Yes, you have.  Yes, we do.

Within the next two weeks I will dig 6 feet back under into mod_mime.

Obviously, this will be restricted to Content handlers.  I specifically want to be
able to;

AddType text/html .txt
AddOutputFilter TextToHtml .txt

Or simply

AddType text/plain .txt
AddOutputFilterByType TextToHtml text/plain

(which requires content-type munging for detection that has to happen in the right 
place at the right time, I dunno what the implications are.)

That will be a beautiful thing.  I'll be writing TextToHtml 1. so I really get to 
understand the 'filter in the middle', and 2. so mod_autoindex can take text/plain 
or text/html, and doesn't do any work itself, and 3. mod_includes could use it too.
