Will apache understand what you're doing with the values in APR::Table?
If you start embedding special characters in the value, won't that cause 
a problem for folks that use APR::Table to set response headers?

If so, I'm against such a change in mod_perl.  APR::Table is chiefly
for working with HTTP headers, which are US-ASCII.  I don't consider
the lack of additional charset support to be a bug in APR::Table.

Probably not, since we override almost everything in APR::Table.
I'm worried more about how apache will deal with it.
