Question about defaulting meta tags...

From: David Wood <dwood(at)not-real.inter.nl.net>

Is there a meta tag defaulting mechanism analogous to how ExtractPath can 
be defaulted:

ExtractPath department regex !^/web/([^/]+)/.*$!$1!
ExtractPathDefault department other

?


In other words, something in the spirit of:

MetaNames document_type
MetaNamesDefault document_type Blah

which would mean "if you find a document_type meta tag in a document, use 
it, but for docs that don't contain such a tag, default that meta tag's 
value to 'Blah'".


And if there isn't such a thing, would the following, er, workaround work?

ExtractPath document_type regex 
!some_horrific_string_that_will_never_match_anything!$1!
ExtractPathDefault document_type Blah
MetaNames document_type

This would seem to be safe for defaulting documents that don't contain a 
document_type meta tag, but for documents that do actually contain a 
document_type meta tag, which directive would win here, ExtractPathDefault 
or the standard MetaNames handling?


Thanks,

David
