The extra options allow you to define how the etag should be
calculated and how the MIME type of files should be detected.
+By default the static handler will not send a charset with
+the response. You can provide a specific charset that will
+be used for all files using the text media type, or provide
+a module and function that will be called when needed:
+detect_charset(Path :: binary()) -> Charset :: binary()
+A charset must always be returned even if it doesn't make
+sense considering the media type of the file. A good default
+is `<<"utf-8">>`.
By default the static handler will generate an etag based
on the size and modification time of the file. You may disable
the etag entirely with `{etag, false}` or provide a module
