   Except this doesn't work for non-HTML files and it requires the server to 
   parse the file (at least until it sees a /HEAD) before even finishing its 
   response headers.

... which is no big deal so long as it can seek back to the start of
the file when it actually sends the data.  (This is why you don't have
to buffer <title>s, for instance).  But I'd still prefer a more
general mechanism on general principles.
