I'll have a look later on (I have little time this weekend).

We also need at least one simple test (another one of Marcus' quotes; if there is no actively run test, it does not exist). We just need an extra version of #testIfModifiedSinceNotModified directly on a local server, it will require some setup, be it should be doable.

Yes, your use case is perfectly valid.
