Oh, I understand. Like I said: I'm not particularly keen on any of them, but
I really have no better thoughts on the matter.

I think that it is simply that headers_sent and sent_eos feel more like
aspects of control flow and/or what you pass thru the chain. Having one
piece of code "drop them off over in that structure there" for a later piece
to pick them up... that rings "global" to me. Yah, yah... Tony said "they're
in the request_rec -- they aren't globals." Well, sure. I knew that :-) ...
it just feels like a global.

In short: don't worry about it. I'm just speaking up that it doesn't feel as
good as it seems like it could, but I simply have no idea how to reach that
higher level of Nirvana :-)
