In the out-of-the-box apache, all you can do with the directory index is
add HTML to the head of the page (HeaderName). There are a couple of
things you can try:

- look for a third-party module which already does what you want
- hack the source code to make indexes appear as you want (look in
src/modules/standard/mod_autoindex.c - probably...)
- forget about modules and write the whole thing in a server-sided
application (CGI, ASP, cocoon etc.)
