Date Fri, 11 Jun 2004 03:36:31 GMT
Why not just fix Apache::Registry to be compliant?

	NAME
	
	Apache::HEADRegistry - Apache::Registry drop-in for HEAD requests
	
	SYNOPSIS
	
	httpd.conf:
	
	 PerlModule Apache::HEADRegsitry
	
	 <Location /perl-bin>
	    SetHandler perl-script
	    PerlHandler Apache::HEADRegistry
	
	    Options +ExecCGI
	    PerlSendHeader On
	 </Location>
	
	DESCRIPTION
	
	Apache::HEADRegistry is a drop-in for Apache::Registry that
	properly handles HEAD requests.  Currently, Apache::Registry
	incorrectly handles HEAD requests - it acts as though they are
	GET requests, returning both the headers and content.  So, not
	only does represent a way in which mod_cgi and Apache::Registry
	are different, but Apache::Registry is not RFC compliant and
	causes trouble with some modern browsers.  This module attempts
	to correct the wrong in Apache::Registry by intercepting headers
	much in the way that mod_perl does, but then respecting the value
	of $r->header_only.
