I just read through SimpleHTTPServer.py and BaseHTTPServer.py and
(after a cursory look) do not see where it does byte ranges.  I don't
think it does.  "Forcing the 1.1 protocol" simply turns on keepalive,
I think.  You'll probably need to hack in byte ranges, although that
would really not be hard and would probably be a welcome addition
