I just tried again with the latest from marcusl's jinja branch.  I
started up a fresh buildmaster, and verified that the root page being
rendered is built from the template (has the gradient background,
etc.).  Then I created an index.html in my public_html directory, with
"Hello World" in it, and reloaded.  Still the templated root page.  I
created "index.txt" and accessed that at URL http://foo/index.txt, and
it worked fine.  I can also access my "Hello World" page at
http://foo/index.html, but not at http://foo/.

So that's the problem -- if there's a non-default index.html file in
public_html, it should get displayed at the root URL.  So this isn't
about index.html's in general, or subdirectories.  It's very
specifically about the root URL.
