beats me...I just work here.

I don't know why you say that, unless you mean that for best performance
we should never be going thru it.  We found a bug in m_m_m earlier this
year, on daedalus.  I think it happens because m_m_m is loaded, and our
default mime.types file doesn't have a mapping for .gz's, or .Z's:

application/x-gtar              gtar
application/x-hdf               hdf

Probably the worst thing that would happen if we didn't load m_m_m is
that autoindex would use different icons for .gz's and .Z's.  Big deal. 
I can experiment with it and chat w/Brian, if the consensus is to get it
off daedalus.
