Added support for the If-Modified-Since header to
SimpleHTTPServer.  That way things like images don't
get downloaded again on every new page request.

What is the reason for raising ValueError, instead of
returning True right away?

Please re-read section 14.25 of the RFC: a if-modified-since
date "from the future" must be considered invalid.

Also, there seems to be some interaction with the Range:
header. How is that dealt with?

Also, where is the length attribute to if-modified-since

Also, should there be changed to Doc/lib/libsimplehttp.tex?
