+1 for something like this - as I've had to manually hack things like this
in more than once to wack something like a broken Oracle/Orian SSO back in
line. However please make it general and either add it as a second
directive or have something like

	Header [ inbound | outbound ] <set|append|add>  header value
	ErrorHeader ..

where the default is outbound. If you are really going to do this - I'd
love to also have added:

	RequestHeader [ inbound | outbound ] <set|append|add>  header value

so I can muck around with the request to fool some php/java backend to
which I do not have sufficient access to hack it in there (say because it
is some broken commercial product).
