Apache X-SendFile in Rails

" There's this slick HTTP header called "X-Sendfile" that Apache and Lighttpd support. It was made to address this kind of problem (isn't that convenient?). Now, when you send an HTTP response, all you have to do is tack on an X-Sendfile header with the path of the file you need to send—don't worry about actually reading the file or sending any of those bytes yourself. The web server will load the file you specified and send it downstream."
