Wasn't there also talk of keeping a checksum or something for each file and
only keeping one copy? In this particular situation this seems very easy,
but I can think of plenty of other situations where it's not so easy to
detect a duplicate file with a unique url.

While we're at it, though, I suggest some way of stripping off strings like
"?D-A" used by Apache's new (1.3) directory sorting feature. I think this
would probably go in htlib/ as well.
