There are a variety of reasons the local_urls feature needs to revert to
HTTP. It only works for a certain set of extensions (since it cannot
replicate server-generated content). It will also revert to HTTP for
directory listings unless it finds a file listed in the local_default_doc

If you're concerned about "counting," most statistics programs have ways
to exclude based on browser or IP address. Excluding hits from your server
or the htdig user-agent is one way of getting a more accurate "count" if
it concerns you.
