It's not just served files, but also files on the localhost that I'm
interested in.  But to give an example, my own http server gives the
following header (analogous to what I have for gzip), but admittedly
I'm pretty stupid when it comes to knowing about headers and such.

HTTP/1.0 200 Document follows

This is for the latest update to the ja.po I did this lunch hour:

     My mime.types entries are:
application/bzip2                 bz2
application/x-bzip2               bz2
     and my mailcap entries are:
application/bzip2; /usr/local/bin/bzip2 -d %s
application/x-bzip2; /usr/local/bin/bzip2 -d %s
(the path is correct)

I'm sure I've got it wrong, but I just can't figure out where.
