That's fine. However, consider that it's not common that TypoScript
properties are set by default. Usually the property is then
called "disable...", but this again looks pretty weird in this context.

I would recommend therefore that we add the following three lines on top of

config.index_enable = 0
config.index_externals = 0
config.index_metatags = 1

This will also make things clear when comparing the settings with the
TypoScript object browser.

> Change in TSref [tsref:config/->CONFIG]:
> Add this after the description of index_descrLgd.
> Property: index_metatags
> Datatype: int
> Description: This allows to turn off indexing of metatags.
> Default: 1

Use "boolean" instead of "int"!
