What I meant in particular was the HTTP code 304 generation. With your
solution the browser will always get a fresh copy even if the cache is
still valid.

That's why I thought returning DECLINED should work. If you want to
switch to dedicated handler other than the default one I think you can
set it via $r->handler(newhandler). But in this case you have to hope
that the new handler is further down the handler chain. Modperl
registers its 2 response handlers with APR_HOOK_MIDDLE. So, it may
depend on the LoadModule order whether the modperl handler comes first
or newhandler.
