Make sure file 'silly' exists in documentroot and make sure it has access protections coded
in a Directory </> 
container :-)

My not so well formed thoughts are that if a module claims it should handle a request based
on a SetHandler 
directive in a Location directive, the server should not allow that handler to DECLINE the
request. Putting it 
another way, if the handler claims the request then DECLINEs, the server should prevent other
handlers from 
attempting to serve the request.
