Cut it out already :-)

We don't know if some other module is -interested- in that dir... so mod_dir
will wait till fixups to say "hey - I can do that!" and auth is run for the 
dir as
well as its index.html.

Negotiation decides way up in type_checker that yea - that's a multiview,
and this is what we will do with it.

Rbb and I chatted about this earlier today.  It seems like once the decision
is reached that we have a fast internal redirect, we should _stop_ processing
that main request.  Obviously some well defined return value from the hook
fn, similar to DONE but not quite the same.

What would be most cool is to set an r->replace_request member to the
subrequest we will run.  Then in the run request phase, look at
replace_request and run the insert_filters/run_handler against that 

Need to spend 2 hours away from work + apache ... I'll check in later and
see if the solution is really that trivial.
