My understanding is that one of the reasons for using handlers is to be
able to generate files/responses, so that, for example, you can install a
cgi handler for requests for non-existant html files and generate them as

Note that I can install a handler in the standard fs dav location for any
file extension, existing or not (i.e. foobar or some such nonsense) and it
will be called as expected, just not in the svn location.
