Re: libexec/httpd and unsorted directory index

httpd(8) provides -X for generating index.

src/libexec/httpd/dir-index-bozo.c uses opendir/readdir with no sorting.

Looking at long index like under the /pub/pkgsrc/... directories is a
little difficult because entries are not sorted alphabetically nor by
modification time.

Should it use glob or scandir with alphasort or other?

        If its going to sort it probably makes sense to provide the
        option of sort key, at least filename & mod asce/desc and
        possibly even size, eg "-k {path,size,mtime}". What to do
        for descending? '-k -size' (ick)
