It is indeed special purpose: it does not send any MIME headers and does not
understand HEAD; neither does the (different) server that serves the parent
document. I mean, what does `501 something broke' mean?

On the other hand, yes, it does provide an html text page which is great. Would
people know to select a link that just says [image] though?
