Hi Steve!

Ayah. :(

I'll fix it the less architecturally-different way (by moving the handler back where it was)

Well, it's kind of a subtle thing to test.  From the outside, we're perfectly compliant in
that we send MU faults when we don't understand MU headers.  The issue is that we do that
*after* the service work has been completed, which is the no-no.  In cases where no back-end
state is affected by the service invocation (i.e. all the interop tests), it doesn't actually

We should also really be making sure that we have a well-defined way to do service-level rollback
if a fault should be produced by a response-chain Handler.  Many services won't want this,
but we should be able to do it for those that do.
