Here's another case:

Assume /index.html is a directory.

When the client asks for /, do we:
  a) ls index.html
  b) recurse, so look for /index.html/index.html, and ls /index.html if
     index.html/index.html doesn't exist
  c) not worry about it because it's a really obnoxious corner case that
     doubles the length of the logic and you're a nice guy who isn't 
     going to write any such test cases
