Description

http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec3.html#sec3.11
specifies that the entity tag should be a quoted string, optionally prefixed by a weakness indicator. Samples tags are given in
http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.19

Currently, lighttpd outputs an unquoted ETag field.

Moreover I suggest using an unsigned variable for the etag, the "-" looks odd.
