I disagree, it's useful, having directories without index.html is bad.

If we put that in webwml, that means creating one dir per architecture, with
a Makefile and an index.wml file. Aside from the cruftiness issue :) the
problem is that other arches will most probably get out of sync with i386.
If they're generated from a single source, that's less likely to happen.
