match_except_index assumes that http://foo/bar/ and http://foo/bar/index.html are equivalent.

In some cases, this is incorrect; some pages use "default.html", "default.asp" and the like. Perhaps an option should be available to specify the full list of "index" files. Perhaps the function should automatically adjust to use whatever was given to --default-page.
