Subject RE: [users@httpd] ETag (entity tag) response header not being added to server side include's

I understand however the FileETag documentation doesn't even *hint* at such
a limitation.

By comparison, mod_disk_cache has no problem reading all the SSI stuff
together and then caching the page (as long as "include virtual" is used).
I think if mod_disk_cache can do it then so can FileETag. (For that matter,
FileETag could generate its Etag off the cached document!)
