Provided that trunk doesn't recognize 'disabled' unless it's a single
argval, then

  DirectoryIndex disabled

turns it off

  DirectoryIndex disabled nothere

would serve disabled[.html] and then nothere[.html].

Can we also ensure it's only 'disabled' (vs 'disable' vs 'none) so there
is only one special-pattern to work around?

(Of course DirectoryIndex disabled.html is just fine to serve that doc.)
