New debconf template for webfs.

Hello there,

I desire a review of the attached debconf template.

In this new form I have primed a new default value in the
template "webfsd/web_root" as called for by #730376, and a
complete rephrasing of the second paragraph of "webfsd/web_index"
according to #727803. Of course I have also removed the approval
seal at the immediate file beginning!

Best regards,
  Mats Erik Andersson

Type: string
_Description: Directory cache size:
 Directory listings can be cached by webfsd. By default, the size of
 the cache is limited to 128 entries. If the web server has

 the directories immediately below the document root as host names.

Type: string
Default: /var/www/html
_Description: Document root for webfsd:
 Webfsd is a lightweight HTTP server for mostly static content. Its
 most obvious use is to provide HTTP access to an anonymous FTP server.
 Please specify the document root for the webfs daemon.
 If you leave this field blank, webfsd will not be started at boot time.

Template: webfsd/web_host
Type: string
_Description: Host name for webfsd:
 By default, webfsd uses the machine name as host name.
 You can specify an alternate host name to be used as an external

 fully qualified domain name.

_Description: Access log file:
 Access to webfsd is logged in common log format.
 If this field is left empty, no logging of incoming connections will
 be done.

Template: webfsd/web_index
Type: string
_Description: Directory index filename:

 index file to be sent to the client. Common names are "index.html" and
 If you leave this field empty, an implicit index file will never be
 delivered as the result of a request for a directory. Instead,
 webfsd can construct a directory listing for any requested directory.
 However, the server will send the listing to the client only if this
 action has not been disabled using the command line switch '-j'.
 Add this switch as an extra option for best secrecy.
