The code will remove the header file and the disk file; but it also likely

Actually, no.

What you really should do if you are going to drop into 'cleanup' mode
on this base URI is RE-VALIDATE ALL THE VARIANTS and remove
any that return bad response codes but keep the ones that are
'still ok'.

It is possible ( and legal? ) for a COS ( Content Origin Server ) to return
a '404' on one variant of an entity but not on another.

I have seen CGI scripts that would do this very thing.
