The local_urls_only attribute only means that htdig will stick to the
translations only and not turn to HTTP.

But there's no way to know it's a text file! The local_urls feature
will only index certain extensions to be on the safe side. The 3.2
code has actual file:/// support, and turns to a mime.types file for
help. (Though at the moment, the local_urls code does not translate
things to a file:// request, which does need to be done.)
