[htdig] start_url and limit_url_to

Hi! I'd have the

start_url: http://foo.com/ http://foo2.com/ http://foo3.com/foofile.html

Some of the start_url URLs I was supplied by the site maintainers are in the
form "http://foo3.com/foofile.html" and they have no index file. Since I am
not in individual contact with all these people and am working off a URL
list, I can't get them all to rename "foofile.html" to "index.html"

However, I'd like to have all the <a href> linked local files on
foofile.html indexed, anyway.

The present limit_urls_to is like this

limit_urls_to: ${start_url}

Can I change the limit_urls_to another generic string that will get every
file on "http://foo3.com/" and sub-directories that is linked to

(I know it would be better if they all had proper index files and I could
just use the URL http://fooX.com/ for each starting_url, but it might be
hard to contact all 300 sites and get them to all change them properly.)

Thanks very much.
