Right, which I think is the stem of the confusion somewhat. Outside of
static, I'd expect things to play the mime game. Inside of static, I
expect everything to be....static.

Adding html to the list of static files is a win/lose proposition. Some
like it. Some don't.

If anything, I think the static directory should be just that: 100% of
the things found in it should be served directly san processing.

Maybe that's just me.
