How ETag:s is generated is extremely server dependent, and not
guaranteed to be unique across different URLs. You can not at all count
on two files having the same ETag but different URLs to be the same
file, unless you also is responsible for the server providing all the
URLs in question and know that the server guarantees this behavior of
ETag beyond what the HTTP specification says.
