Ah, ok.  It's something to build from though.

Yes -- I see it calls those.

My requirement is something equivalent to what's happening in the bulk
of serveDirectory.  Given:
 - a set of files
 - the user preferences
 - possibly a format string (or else use the configured song format

Given those, produce a list which is a buncha HTML lines you can spit
out (sorted and all).

As I see it, this lets you reduce code all over the place.  Not only
in serveDirectory, but in,,, etc etc
etc.  Right now they each have their own way of rendering files.
