- here notification about dropping cursorless getting.

Twitter returns ETag header in HTTP response. I'm getting something
like this:

bob...@callisto ~ % curl -X HEAD -I "http://twitter.com/followers/
ids.json?screen_name=ibobrik&cursor=-1"

Is ETag always refers to exactly one followers state? E.g. if someone
added/removed from that list, checksum strictly will be different?

Why doesn't twitter API wiki describe HEAD requests? May be so useful
if developers can trust them, of course.
