In the single case of Apache's use of .GIF... why not just change
them all to .JPG? The only browsers I know of that support .GIF
but not .JPG are some of the wireless handheld deals... but that's
another story... they are always going through a gateway and a
transcoding proxy that's supposed to take care of all that
auto-magically. ( Convert .JPG back to .GIF for User-Agents that
only handle .GIF ).
