I presume this is not safe, but is tolerated by die because we will mop up all
of the resources very soon thereafter.  Note that it is only successful if the
headers had not been set up in an earlier call to pass brigade that made it
to the protocol stack.  I would look at the log results carefully and trace the
request to ensure you are satisfied with the processing.

It is certainly not recommended, that does not mean it's not possible.
