Get off your high horse, ever used URL's or URL fragments as path_info?

Er, duh, you need a -p option to mkdir or a directory 'http:' to exist
already.

If you just want something to rag about, do it offline.  On-the-fly
compression sounds nice but what you win on the wire you lose on the CPU
both for compression and for detecting if the client is capable.  If the
latter isn't a worry, precompress everything (a content management
problem, not a server problem) and use multiviews.  Yawn.
