Wait, if we have basename, why would we need prefix?

So if basename is 'dir/foo', and my chapter id is 'bar', and my
extension is 'html', the URL for the output would be
'dir/foo-bar.html', right?  Footnotes could be in
'dir/foo-footnotes.html' -- why not?

If the basename is just 'dir/' (trailing slash needed!) and the other
stuff is the same, the output would be 'dir/bar.html' and
'dir/footnotes.html'.  Sound good?

The intention here is that *fewer* variable are better.  You've
flattenned Norm Walsh's three variables (dir, basename, top-filename,
and, uh, even %use-id-in-filename) to two variables, which is better.
