Includes nuke some headers? (NCSA)

Hi all,
I discovered an interesting artifact of turning on server-side
includes in NCSA's httpd 1.3R: it seems to inhibit the sending of both the
Last-modified and the Content-length headers. I never saw this documented,
so it took me a while to figure out why I wasn't seeing these headers from
our server! Is this a known feature? Is there a planned fix for it in 1.4?

(Yes, I realize that providing accurate information for these fields while
including files is difficult. However, not having a Last-modified field
basically prevents our pages from being cached anywhere -- a big minus
