Yes! Tweaking IndexOnly solved my immediate problem, but it wasn't general
enough. The real problem is that Swish-E has lots of ways to *exclude*
files from an index, but does not have nearly as much flexibility in
specifying file to *include*.
How would people feel about making an even more radical change --
deprecate FileRules and replace it with two new configuration commands:
FileExclude and FileInclude?
Then you could have, eg:
FileInclude pathname contains 1998
FileInclude filename contains index.html
FileInclude directory contains .index_me
and so on.
If memory serves, Swish-E 1.2 will support regular expressions in
FileRules. Now that would be a *really* flexible system!
