With the script in question it seemed to happen about 10% of the time,
but, I decided to write a quick and dirty script to see how many sites
did this. I used the top 30 sites according to alexa.org, top 30 on
reddit as of now, and the contents of my RSS reader (not necessarily
representative, of course), but I actually only got 1 wrong etag. Maybe
I just got unlucky yesterday.*shrugs*. Best just to ignore the patch,
but thanks anyway.
