    I'd agree with that - I know *I* don't.  I consider that to be quite a
    static file, and it never even occurred to me to check it.

    Hmm, well..  I'd suggest putting the .htm type into srm.conf-dist also.  I
    know I *do* check subsequent releases of this file (and the other
    .conf-dist files) for changes, and I suspect I'm not the only one.  True,
    this results in the encoding appearing in two different sources, which is
    rather inelegant - but works around this.  Of course, I simply transfer my
    *.conf files (with any noted changes) into the new server tree, too, so
    I've invisibly picked up the new mime.types file without noticing.
    Obviously, not everyone does that, or this problem wouldn't have been
