Maybe Base64 would be better or something? At least it's unambiguous and it
can go straight from UTF-8 to bytes to ASCII-armored.
## Turtle in Firefox's network debugger
The turtle shows up if Firefox has to wait more than 500 ms till first byte.
Curl says we can download a small file (950 bytes) end-to-end in about 250 ms.
So I think somewhere between Firefox and Caddy, something is getting confused.
Firefox, probably the same as Chromium, doesn't try to buffer entire videos
at once, so I think it purposely hangs the download, and then I'm not sure
what happens.
I might have to build a client that imitates this behavior, since it's hard
to control.
