This is one of the reasons I disagree so strongly with changing
the DEFAULT to send no user agent header. Besides, that one really
does make one suspicious, doesn't it? I expect the problem being
only on a selected handfull of servers that actually use the module,
plus most distributions would allow to file bugs against it and have
it patched even if upstream authors don't care.

 seconds since the Epoch precisely represent the number of
