Support a default blob for Blob storage containers
Blob storage is, in effect, a big massive scale static web server. THis makes it very suitale for directly serving certain types of static web sites that may be hit by a big spike in load. The one statis web server feature missing that is really hard to work around is a lack of a default document.
It should be possible to set a single blob in each container as the default blob and this should be returned if the HTTP GET request provides only the container name.
I love your idea. Thank you. I hope someone at Windows Azure team my get excited about it as well.

I saw this idea: http://www.mygreatwindowsazureidea.com/forums/34192-windows-azure-feature-voting/suggestions/410922-support-root-blobs?ref=title and voted for that one instead. Turns out yours is the same. Can you vote for the other one as well since it's 91st ranked now ?
