The old 'list form' (plain) was far faster.  Unfortunately, it also potentially displayed
files that, while not accessable to the user, perhaps advertised things you did not want
them aware of.  Apache 2.0 now runs all listings through the same subrequest mechansim,
and if they are declined, it chooses not to display them.

This process causes a lot more cpu, with the advantage that we know if the file is a
directory, so the trailing slash can be displayed on plain autoindex listings.

Try an absolute URI, as documented (e.g. /indexes/.head instead of /www/docroot/indexes/.head)
