 In that case, I would like to suggest a change to pass a copy of the Date
 header value in the environment to cgi-bin scripts. This would allow cgi-bin
 scripts to make sure that their Last-Modified headers aren't greater than
 their Date headers without having to make guesses about worst case latencies.
 Thanks for looking into this.
