Thanks - I've just been through this in detail, but I can't get it to 
work. In fact, DirectoryMatch doesn't even work with a '$' - it misses 
the match. I've tried lots of combinations of the basic

<DirectoryMatch "^/var/www/html/foo/downloads$">

with and without the $, the quotes, and the ^, and nothing with the $ 
successfully matches the directory.

I've also tried splitting the lower-level directories off as symlinks, 
but nothing seems to work - IndexIgnore inheritance seems to be unbreakable.
