If there is no physical file, then nothing will get done by the patch at
all (since r->finfo.filetype is 0). It won't affect mod_dir's old
behaviour at all. I'm not sure how that changes things...

I guess I was aiming at this:

- if all files are physical and local, then mod_dir and DirectoryIndex
are fine and make sense
- if all files are not physical and local, mod_dir and DirectoryIndex
don't make sense and should not be used
