[Twisted-web] Override File's DirectoryLister?

I'm new to Twisted and it looks like a good way to add a web server to my
existing project. I am successfully following the example at
display the directories with the default file listing code.

Now I want to modify that default behavior for directory listing to:

- filter out/exclude certain kinds of files (e.g., by the extension), and
- add a few elements to the HTML page displayed.

I've read the code of static.py, and see that the the DirectoryLister class
seems to govern this. I believe I need to make a subslass, but I'm not a
strong Python programmer, so the minor variations I tried kept running
amiss of the class hierarchy, etc.

Could someone give me an outline of the method declarations that are needed
to get the behavior above? Many thanks.
