Awesome! I've been wanting/needing this for a while. Apparently the
Squeak community goes one step better than the Lazy Web - I don't even
have to post it to the Web, I just have to *think* about something I
need implemented :)
Anyway, thanks a lot to you (and Goran, I believe) for getting this into
Squeak and onto SqueakMap. I'm excited.
Does this handle Last-Modified, If-Changed-Since and Etags? Does it
handle mod_gzipped content?
