Index page for Amazon S3

So I've been looking for a way to get index pages on Amazon S3. Turns out Amazon doesn't provide them, and nobody else really does either. Well, we can fix that!

Bonus: it's stylable! The script automatically includes a CSS file named "s3index.css" in the bucket, and all the elements have classes declared.

Source code coming later, it's still extremely messy right now. >_>
