Live reload (with mkdocs serve) is broken in 0.16.2; saving a file triggers a reload, but the page contents doesn't change because the server returns a 304 Not Modified.

I did a bit of testing, and it looks like efbc789 (#1141) is the suspect commit. The _get_handler method introduced in that PR inherits from tornado.web.StaticFileHandler. livereload has a slightly customized StaticFileHandler which disables 304's:

This fixes the issue by using the correct StaticFileHandler

Fix live reload
This fixes a regression caused by efbc789 (#1141).

Awesome. Thanks. I noticed some weirdness the other day when I was working on something else. But of course, I didn't investigate because I was working on something else at the time.
