True, it could be done that way, however the new idea I introduced

 -  a mime type that the server sees as "send file as is" 
      i.e. the file should have it's own HTTP headers

is a really simple and (I think) inexpensive thing to add, which
can be used for other things too.

I'm going to look into writing a patch for this, 'cos I think
it'll be useful, even if we fix redirection on a directory basis
in some other form.
