[plt-scheme] web-server: response/basic vs. response/full

The documentation for response/basic [1] says that there is a 'code'
field. You can make the code 304. For example:

(make-response/basic 302 "Not Modified" (current-seconds) #"text/plain" empty)

You can also use a response/full with the additional field if you need
some content too.

Are you saying you didn't realize you could do this, or that there is
a bug when you try to?
