Google Web Accelerator

Kids shouldn't be playing in the streets yet they do despite what we tell them. When a car runs over a kid playing in the street, what should the parents do? Spank the kid and let the driver go because kids shouldn't be playing in the street? IMHO, this is what happened with Google Web Accelerator (GWA) and Signal37's web applications.

So what should we do? Throw the driver in the slammer, warn the kids again, put up roadsigns and speedbumps. Alternatives are break every kids' legs so they can't play in the streets or turn roads into playgrounds.

Update:

See RFC 2616, Section 9.1.1.
