there are other search criteria that will give us a list of the old bugs.
Looks like I filed it in Mozilla's bug tracker during the Firefox 2
development days; since the next version of the biggest cross-platform
browser didn't support it, I never actually committed the version using
'identity' to our SVN.
Apparently the bug's been resolved somewhere between 2006 and 2010 (my test
URL still pumps out the header, and it loads in Firefox 4 RC1), but I
haven't done a thorough browser survey to see whether any release versions
of Firefox 2 or 3 broke, or any other browsers or proxies or client apps
would be similarly affected by it.
