      Description

      Range requests against a stale cache entry always cause the Range request to be tunneled with no conditional. It would be nice if it used conditionals even if it couldn't update the cache entry just to cut down the traffic. (Not sure if updating the cache entry would be right, does If-Modified-Since refer only to the Range requested or to the whole object?) We could also have an option to use If-Range in these cases, but that might not make sense as a global decision...
