Pretty much that - Static::Simple is really meant for development  
only, and in such a situation, you really want to not serve cache  
headers, as you don't want things cached when you're developing.

That said, this isn't the first time someone has suggested this  
recently, so maybe it's worth just adding as an option in  
Static::Simple directly (with suitable warnings about production use  
in the documentation).
