trailing slash page canonicalization

To be honest, it feels like handling canonical URIs is what the
webserver should handle, not the CGI application unless I'm missing
something here.

A poor example but GitHub uses meta canonical URI on the repository
index, but not for issues.

Unless it's really broken and not just about SEO optimization, I would
leave the heavy lifting to the webserver.
