This patch adds an optional parameter called default to django.views.static.serve, which gives the name of a file (eg. index.html) to use in place of a directory listing. This allows runserver to better simulate a real webserver.

django.static.serve is specifically desgined not to emulate a "real" web server; not serving index.html is by design.
