comment How to make `rm` faster on ext3/linux?
That is wrong and INCREDIBLY dangerous. /dev/null is a device, which a special file-like object. If you're root, "mv /some/file /dev/null" will DELETE the special /dev/null device and move your file there! So the next time someone tries to use /dev/null they'll be using a real file instead of the device, and disaster ensues. (When Wikipedia says that it "discards all data written to it", that means that "cat /some/file > /dev/null" will read /some/file and discard the data you read, but that won't affect the original file).

comment Set Apache HTTP header except for specified URL
I want "set header for everything EXCEPT this one CGI." I think your code does "set header for JUST this one CGI"?
