That's fine. It's a pretty trivial patch and it's out there available
to anybody who needs it which is what is important. Just giving back
to the community.

With regard to your other code comments, my philosophy is that
readability is more important then some vague concept of elegance (c.f.
the terrific "Perl Best Practices" book). Which makes me scream in
horror at something like this which you suggest as an improvement:

> $res = $ua->get($path, ($range ? ("Range" => "bytes=$range") : ()));

But, to each his own. I really do appreciate your comments and
suggestions, I just don't have the time to work on this any more.
