When I save a file then request it, the last-modified header doesn't reflect
the mtime according to stat(), but instead appears to only *gradually* increase
for a minute, reporting a different last-modified time each time it is accessed
until it does match up with mtime.  This throws off a particular utility of mine 
that "watches" a url and triggers an event when it changes, causing spurious
updates.  I'm not certain if this is a feature of some sort, but it certainly
appears to be counterintuitive...
