generate Content-Location headers

           Summary: generate Content-Location headers
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.39
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: mod_dir
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: bugs.apache.org@mnot.net


The Content-Location HTTP header indicates an alternate location for the 
entity associated with a message. This much underused facility could be very 
useful to agents and automated systems like Google, in order to get a richer 
understanding about the relationship between resources.

For example, if mod_dir were to generate a C-L header for requests to "/":
  Content-Location: /index.html
and likewise requests for /index.html:
  Content-Location: /
Google would know that the representations it stores for each are equivalent, 
rather than just assuming so by using a heuristic.

This is a low-cost way to add some intelligence to the Web. Please consider 
adding C-L to mod_dir. Thanks!
