Ah. Then part of the bug is that the documentation for mod_mime
doesn't seem to say this anywhere. And the CGI perl doc managed to
confuse me with the -encoding argument to start_html(), without saying
"Hey, dummy, you have to set the charset in the header() to get a
Content-Type line..."

And that was my bug: I was calling start_html() with an -encoding but
I was not adding -charset to header(). Thus, I was not emitting a
Content-Type header at all.

So my personal problem is solved. And apache 2.0.58 is properly sending
this Content-Type in the headers.
