There were various rationales for leaving those alone. For example,
libs/filesystem and libs/numeric already have index.html files, and that
seemed sufficient.

Didn't want to lose the history on that, and it doesn't seem to cause any
server problems.

If you want to suggest fixes and patches, take a look at No
matter how often we reduce the problem count, it soon grows again.

We could be compulsive about trying to clear every problem, but it makes
better sense to me to go for the high priority problems, and devote the
rest of our energy to developing libraries.
