I 'm new to Jigsaw. I 'd like to do something like this.
Could some one please throw more detail into the phrase
"register a *noextension* template"? I mean what do you do 
once you click on the "Configure the Server" link?
Or if you could point to a URL in the Jigsaw docs that 
explains this better that owuld be useful too.

I have been able to configure a "pass directory" after
reading the faq but I 'm still bounced by this once.

This is fixed, I think (hope) the ifx is in 1.0alpha5. You can
register a "*noextension*" template that will be used to index files
with no extension.

I am pretty sure this is in 1.0alpha5
