	Title		: Simple Hit-Metering and Usage-Limiting for HTTP
	Author(s)	: J. Mogul, P. Leach
	Filename	: draft-ietf-http-hit-metering-04.txt

        This document proposes a simple extension to HTTP, using a
        new ``Meter'' header, which permits a limited form of
        demographic information (colloquially called
        ``hit-counts'') to be reported by caches to origin servers,
        in a more efficient manner than the ``cache-busting''
        techniques currently used.  It also permits an origin

NOTE:	The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
