I dug into the source archive to find out when the mapping happened. March,
2008, when Mochiweb was incorporated (or updated or something). The third
issue in Jira was HEAD not being supported and was resolved as part of that
checkin. No other communications about this specific topic appear to exist.

Unfortunately, that would imply it wasn't a "fix" for something else, but
rather "the way CouchDB will handle HEAD".

Now to decide how to deal with this for my project...
