When your customer states categorically that it is a problem, then it is
my job to investigate.

Not being interested in the pseudoscience that is SEO, I have to do my
research starting pretty close to the bottom of the ladder.

- first to attempt to replicate what they swear is being done in
apache ( as defined in the above quoted article ), and
- second ( once I've proved to myself that it isn't possible - and
there's plenty of articles on google saying it is! ), to see whether it
actually matters.

And the answer is... no it doesn't matter and that's what the canonical
headers are for.

Now I know this, I can get back to the enjoyable task of making nginx
run faster and more securely than ever!
