UNIX assumed. Specifics irrelevant.
ReadmeName/HeaderName assume .html suffix, which causes problems in DOS 8.3 
environments which have standardized on .htm as the text/html suffix. The 
feature is not accessible in this limited world.

(This is semi-serious to those of us supporting DOS clients, but in the grand
scheme of things, I guess its non-critical. :)

Either add ReadmeNameSuffix/HeaderNameSuffix directives (or similar) so one can
specify an explicit suffix, of change the ReadmeName/HeaderName directory 
processing to iterate through all valid text/html suffixes configured for that 

The former might be semi-easy but require config file changes everywhere.
The latter would be totally cool, but probably more difficult to implement.
