[erlang-patches] erl_script_alias enhancement proposal

I don't know if it's the correct mailing list to send such patch. Let me 
know if I'm doing 'bad things'.

* Purpose of the evolution.

Right now if you have a httpd configuration containing 
{erl_script_alias, "/my_dir", [ mod1, mod2]}, you'll be able to execute 
erlang module hitting urls like http://myhost/my_dir/mod1:any_function 
and http://myhost/my_dir/mod2:anyfunction

I'd like to be able to omit the module and the function name in the url. 
(put http://myhost/my_dir or http://myhost/my_dir/ in my broswer) and 
get some erlang code executed.

* Enhancement proposal

Add the possibiity to configure httpd with something like 
{erl_script_alias, {"my_dir",{{Module,Function}, Authorized_modules}}},
Where Module:Function will be the function called for the url "/my_dir"
