Actually I'm wrong... it's more like:

	r->status != HTTP_OK && (r->prev || it was a custom error response)

I wasn't really trying to say that is_initial_req should be used... I was just
trying to figure out what no_local_copy means.  (And I still don't really
understand it.)

You wanna try it out?  Or should I just commit it?
