Subject: If-Modified-Since
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 508b
I'd expect a static handler to support If-Modified-Since and status 304 responses out of the box, but this doesn't. Attached is a simple patch to make it do so. Enabling the ConditionalGET middleware has the same effect, but requires the user add an additional bit of configuration. Though at that point, there's not much reason not to just use Plack::App::Static. I don't really care about my patch vs. ConditionalGET, but I think If-Modified-Since should be supported out of the box one way or another.
