We've observed problems here with Netscape 2.x on Mac and Windows (3.1 and
95) and MSIE 2.0. While some of these may be the header flush problem, or
bad TCP/IP stacks, I've been playing it safe with

BrowserMatch Mozilla/2 nokeepalive

To be ultraprecise in my targeting, I will probably alter this to try
not to penalize UNIX or MSIE 3.x users.

No one is complaining to me about broken browsers with the above rule,
and I still see lots of keepalive reads going.
