Can you provide an example ?
It sounds like a cat and mouse game. There are many different ways of doing
anti-scraping. I assume the servers will change their method after most clients
adopted a work-around for the 404 on HEAD requests and the Range requirement. I
would also assume that some servers require a Range header to be *not* set
and/or require a HEAD request *before* the GET.
So if we work-around this server behavior, I'd suggest to enable this via a new
command line option.
