Josh, your change is altogether wrong, since the typical user doesn't create
.var files to serve.  In fact it is further wrong since index.html.var should
be attempted before index.html [which in multiviews, will trigger index.html.var
after first wasting a dozen stats.]  So it was wrong - remains wrong, only
differently so.  I seem to remember we switched index.html with index.html.var
for some obscure reason - possibly related to the state of negotation.  With my
boss telling me I'm finally pat on the 'extra' work-work assignments piled on my 
desk, I can FINALLY go back to the httpd tree and get negotation wrapped up :-!
So leave this till negotation works this weekend.

Agreed, this had a few users confused [with both sections in their config.]
Right call.
