i imagine the apache maintainers will argue that it should be either (a)
the webapp package or (b) the php apache module's repsonsibility
to specify the additional DirectoryIndex.

iirc DirectoryIndex does/can append to the list of index files, right?
if so i'd have no problem slipping this into the php/apache module
configuration files if that's the agreed course of action.  but whether
or not this makes it to etch is an open question.
