I should agree here. Creating .listing files even for local and sftp
archives would be a good default. Most of the people publish their
archives using pure http. I remember having difficult times while
deciding whether to explain --listing option in my short tutorial or not.
I decided not to, because of time limits, and I know for sure that at
least several people learning from this tutorial will hit this trap.
