It might help if _all_ decisions based on the file name (or pathname) 
were handled by regexps like FileRules does.  I still get confused which 
directives only look at suffixes (IndexOnly, NoContents, IndexContents, 
FileFilter - I think) and which can do regexps on the whole pathname 
(FileRules, FileMatch - I think).
