Is the intention that the way this new mod_dir directive works is such
that SCRIPT_NAME as added by ap_add_cgi_vars() would equate to the URL
of the directory, or is it still going to end up having index.php on
the URL, like with when using rewrite rules to achieve the same thing?

It is a bit of pain that when using rewrite rules that you have to do
a fiddle to SCRIPT_NAME to avoid the index.php bit appearing if you
base URL reconstruction on SCRIPT_NAME.
