Thanks for the reply. I actually am interested in bots, at least in the
form of legitimate web crawlers. My itty bitty website was specifically
intended to expose the archives of a defunct (but formerly public) mailing
list to interested parties and said crawlers:


Performance requirements are decidedly minimal.

In addition, the last time I did anything with the web was about 20 years
ago, so this whole enterprise is a fun (for some definition of "fun")
reacquaintance with more current web application development. I spent most
of my career (I'm now retired) using Python to implement various things for
various uses, so Flask was a pretty straightforward way to get something up
and running quickly.

As a placeholder for something more sophisticated, a couple location
directives squashed a large fraction of the problematic URIs.
