[ee122] File w/o extension + Directory listing question...

So for directory listing, say the client requests "/foo"

If file "foo" exists, does that mean _no_matter_what_ we always just  
go "501 Not Implemented: /foo" because supported filetypes are  
determined by filename extension?

If "foo" is a directory, we're supposed to return the contents of the  
ls command. The documentation _suggests_ we pipe the results of ls  
into a file. Does this file need to be called something particular?  
Could we just call it .tmp_file_contents.txt and then return that (ie:  
end up doing HTTP/1.0 200 OK\nContent-Type: text/plain\nContent- 
Length: 9999\n\r\nCONTENTS-OF-.tmp_file_contents.txt) and then delete  
the temporary file?
