Just for general information, mozilla (and browsers based upon it)
always do a HEAD before a GET if the user does a right-mouse-click
menu "Save Link Target As..." or does a "Save Page As...". This
recently caused me headaches with some of my mod_perl scripts that
were returning broken responses to the HEAD request.
