[thelist] Site Downloaders get SSi componants?

sounds like you need FTP :) Making the file request over HTTP is asking 
the server for that file. No amount of trickery on the request side will 
stop the server from parsing it for SSI, if that's what it's been 
configured to do.
OTOH the SSI content (assuming it was a file or virtual include) will be 
exactly the same, character for character, in each file, so it wouldn't 
be hard to "reverse engineer" by searching and replacing with ssi 
statements... but it's not reasonable to expect a site downloader to it 
for you.
