I'm hoping they switch to the tagname/index.html solution - it seems
logical enough and the only downside would be some more FTP overhead
(which I for one am more than willing to wear). Unless of course
there's something in Blogger's code base which would come into play.

Personally I'd like to see the directory+index.html solution for all
Blogger pages, it'd pave the way to eventually allow other formats
like PHP, for one thing. But anyway, that's off the topic.
