[mod_python] Why do I get a 405 ERROR on HEAD REQUEST?

it seems that adding "HEAD" to this code in modpython/publisher.py fixes 
the issue:

(around line 41)

def handler(req):
    req.allow_methods(["GET", "POST"])
    if req.method not in ["GET", "POST"]:

is there a more elegant way to fix this?  why does the publisher handler 
set the allowable methods?  shouldn't i have control over that?   do i 
and just not know it?  or do i just have to create my  own publisher?
