    I'm sure Marc's pain on a reload is less than 10 minutes.  I hope.
    As I pointed out earlier, a Last-Modified based upon the database
    update time would be just ducky - as long as the DB didn't change
    whilst you were looking at stuff.  Otherwise, a change to some
    problem you *weren't* looking at - or even interested in - would
    force an undesired reload.

    I can modify the script to emit the Expires: header only on the
    table page instead of always; that's probably a good step anyway,
    since that's the one that requires the major reload and set-up.
    Maybe it would be best to have the 30M expiry on the search-results
    page, a virtually infinite expiry on the search form, and either no
    expiry or the actual PR Last-Modified for the full PR display.
    Those are fairly easily do-able..
