I expect that will work.  

If this is the only workaround available, my next question is: why is
Debian's apache configured to use a "text/x-csrc" MIME type?  Are
there other web browsers that do something sensible with that MIME type?

I tried Netscape, Mozilla, Galeon (mozilla-based), "Browse X", and
lynx.  None of them would display text/x-csrc.  The first three tried
to save it to disk, BrowseX showed a blank page, and lynx completely
ignored my attempt to open the link.
