My opinion: I think we will need the configuration knob, so there is time
to fix the problem, as a client bug is not always immediatly fixable.

Either that or we do it like Apache (returning file abc when the request
is GET /abc xyz HTTP/1.1), but that is still inconsistent and I don't like
it personally.
