Thanks for the pointer, Jacob.

I noticed that planet server doesn't handle 304 (Etag, If-Non-Match,
If-Modified-Since) caching.  While I imagine bandwidth isn't an issue for
uchicago, it can help a proxy to identify whether to download the package
again (and save bandwidth).  This would be a feature request ;)
