I wonder does it make sense to download latest_specs.4.8.gz when
doing a 'gem install '? It's 270k gzipped. Why this cannot be
worked out by a server side? latest_specs is updated often enough,
and it uses 'If-Modified-Since', but is there any statistics of
200/304 response proportion?
It's even worse with bundler, since it always downloads
specs.4.8.gz 700k gzipped and prerelease_specs.4.8.gz 35k.
Does this traffic overhead worth some server-side calculation?
Yes, this might require moving some gem/bundler logic to server
side, but the traffic will almost only consist of the gems
