Before I go back and put back all the stuff I took out of the docs on
mod_include handlers (;-) could you clarify this a little for me.

1. True/False:  Using the handler is perfectly equivalent to using the
filter except in the case where more than one filter or handler is in use
or a content-type other than text/html is being filtered.  The
server-parsed handler cannot be used when another handler is in use for
the same file (eg. cgi-script).  As well, the server-parsed handler will
always run first, so if you wish the INCLUDES filter to run after another
filter, you should explictly specify the filter chain using SetFilter.
Finally, the server-parsed filter will always output HTML, whereas the
INCLUDES filter can process any file type and will not change the

2. What is the "recommended" way of using mod_include?  SetFilter is more
flexible, but the <FilesMatch> thing makes it hard to use and slows down
the directory-walk.

3. If you are going to add back the magic-mime-type, please let me know so
I don't have to re-re-revise the docs.
