Subject doc or fix ForceType for not-default-handler?
Date Fri, 29 Oct 2010 14:14:54 GMT
Currently ForceType is only really effective for static files, since
it works in a fixup hook and most other generators/handler will
clobber the value in the actual handler by calling ap_set_content_type

Should it be documented a bit more directly (a guru can read between
the lines of the doc if you know what you're looking to justify),
moved into calling ap_set_content_type in a filter, or some other
directive be added to do this in a filter?

(IIRC mod_headers can't do this for free since it's before the HTTP
filter turns the r->content_type into a header)
