I was afraid of that.  It sounds like HTTP isn't really the most
appropriate protocol for this application, although I understand the
desire to reuse existing stuff.

Assuming you don't want to go through the hassle of defining a new
protocol and implementing an apache protocol module, a possible trick
would be to use HTTP/0.9 rather than HTTP/1.x.  In other words, send
GET /yourfile[enter]
and you will get a response back with no headers.

Of  course, I don't know how well tested or maintained HTTP/0.9
support in apache is.  But it not not matter for your purposes.
