However, if a "casual HTTP browser" contacts a Subversion repository,
On the other hand, mod_dav_svn is already generating ETag headers,
I suppose there could be two advantages with reporting Last-Modified
- Perhaps some older caches support Last-Modified but not ETag.
- A cache can guess an expiry date based on how long the resource
- RFC 2616 section 13.3.4 says servers SHOULD do so.
