I use Analog which I was easily able to configure to put its output into
a file named index_html, which I server via LocalFS. Works fine.
LocalFS would work ok for webalizer too - it doesn't strip
extensions.  Only problem is, LocalFS doesn't prevent edits TTW
like FSDV does - but you can enforce that by setting permissions
(either on the filesystem so the zope process ownere cannot write to that
directory, or in zope by configuring permissions on the LocalFS instance).
