X-Sendfile handoff to mod-static-file in 1.4.x
A common use case for X-Sendfile is simple authentication - a backend determines if a user should get a file, and if so, fires off an X-Sendfile. In this use case, it makes very little sense for the backend to re-implement the things that lighttpd already does for serving other static files - figuring out and serving Content Type headers, ETags, 304 responses, etc.
Essentially, I'd like a way to tell lighty to "just serve the file the way you'd serve any other static file".
1.5 apparently has this feature as mentioned here: http://blog.lighttpd.net/articles/2006/07/22/mod_proxy_core-got-x-sendfile-support
