Itamar is a twisted hero once again!  Yaay!

How hard is this?

I read this section of the RFC; it sounds useless... do you know what is
the intent?

Is this necessary for HTTP/1.1?  static.File supports it, I suppose
static.Data should too; but I imagine that most dynamic content pages on
web app sites don't support content-range...

There's probably an unspoken "4. run a website with it for 6 months to
makme sure it's actually stable"... :)
