I just think the unparalleled coding talent that comprises the osC project would be better spent if directed at items that can't be solved with a simple text file. (See, I can suck up to the boss as well as anyone else in this thread).
I can certainly understand the feeling.
When one is aware of robots.txt, aware of the syntax of robots.txt ( or you'll kill the site potentially ) then robots.txt is ofc the way to go.
BUT and it's a big but for me .. the vast majority of shop owners do not know .. therefore an "already installed" version of this looks to me a big plus.
Ask the average site owner to actually create syntax of any form and it virtually always goes wrong.
I do think though it would have been far more valuable if e.g you could: -
Select a root file and choose: -
Noindex, follow ( if querystring has these keys )
canonical ( params to remove from tep_href_link() ( tep_get_all_get_params() ) )
