Forwarding if there is no ending "/" doesn't seem right. I'm very sure 
anchors will be broken.

It may be a good idea to include a modified patch that makes this optional -
but IMO redirect should remain the default. But please verify that anchors
work, including cases where the welcome file is in another directory.
