I got Guenther's patch, and integrated it into my changes. The
syntax of AddHref is:

AddHref url <list of extensions>

I made two change to Guenther's stuff: if the AddHref clause includes
a ? in the url, the path to the file is added; and the complete,
unaliased pathname is used, not the path relative to DocumentRoot or
the alias.

It's running on Let me know
what you think. Note that I haven't changed the way Directory Index
options are parsed. Also, I haven't made AddHref available from
access.conf and .htaccess. Do you guys think we need to do that?

I have one question: When LinkIcons is on, how do I make the
AddHref'ed icons stand out?? Currently, the only difference is a
rather cheezy icon I drew... :)
