vhttpd AllowExt, ExcludeExt Defaults Changed - Caveat

The vhttpd web server setting AllowExt (here) default in Texis version 6 was changed to "*", not a fixed list of known extensions. ExcludeExt was changed to """ .vs .vtx". This avoids the hassle of having to edit AllowExt every time a new document format is added. Restricting Vortex scripts/objects is retained in case ScriptRoot was manually reconfigured to use document root. Normally Vortex scripts are in a separate texis/scripts directory by default anyway.

Caveat: The version 6 AllowExt and DefaultExt defaults allow all file extensions except Vortex scripts/objects (and files with no extension) to be downloaded via vhttpd.
