Description Paul J Murphy 2002-04-11 23:36:26 UTC
It's useful to be able to set the Expires header according to just the major 
(but not the minor) MIME type (ie Content-Type: major/minor), eg:

    ExpiresByType image/* "access plus 1 week"

The attached patch adds this behaviour, and has been successfully tested on 
Solaris 8/SPARC with recent Sun patches.
