Actually I hadn't noticed that extra sentence.

Is that like a "sigillum sanctum fraternitatis"? Oh - I get it, you

I'm not sure someone reading this in amongst a dozen other templates
is going to be able to identify "the last question in this set".
Would it be possible to move it so that it's guaranteed to be next?
(I hope it isn't lower-priority, and therefore possibly skipped.)
Perhaps it would be better first to have a sentence introducing the -j
option and then one covering the ways of adding it...
If I answer "-j" to the webfsd/web_extras template, does that itself
end up in /etc/webfsd.conf? If so, perhaps it should be:
In the absence of an index, webfsd will normally construct a listing for
any requested directory. However, if you consider a generated directory
listing to present a security risk, then the listing can be disabled by
running the server with the "-j" option. This option can be added to the
variable "web_extras" in "/etc/webfsd.conf", either manually or by way
of the following dialog ("Extra options to include").
