I don't think anything will "break". Mod_proxy_http silently removes
some lines from the header. Right now it doesn't work as advertised.

This sound a little weird to me. ProxyErrorOverride should not override
non-errors or it should have a different name like
ProxyErrorAndRedirectAndInfoOverride.

We could add an option ProxyRedirectOverride. I can't think of a
situation where you would want this though..
