Subject Re: [PATCH] bugfix for byterange filter
Date Fri, 20 Apr 2001 03:26:48 GMT
how does that work when the browser is making a byterange request on a
massive object... does the proxy strip the byterange before sending to the
upstream?

if so... ew.

it would seem the proxy needs to do byteranges (including caching of
partial content)... or treat byterange requests as uncacheable or
something.  ew :)
