OK, that should be good, although right now it has troubles if you request anything (besides the entry page) using a directory-based URL instead of the full path - looks like the server DirectoryIndex isn't configured to recognize index.php as the main/default page, therefore unless the URL includes the full file path, it's sending out directory listings instead of the desired HTML.
E.g. if you ask for http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/grass/download/ instead of http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/grass/download/index.php, you get a file listing.

If you could set that up, yes we think it would work for us.
