The status before was that you were lead to the directory listing. No
direct linkage.

The naming of the file should reflect this. E.g. the drupal tags are
called drupal.php.tags. Ok, here might be a version number missing for
API, but however, ppl now these are the drupal tags so IÄm afraid I
cannot agree with you here.

also added to file I cannot agree with the point to maintain another
