Yes, it will work, thank you :)

The advantage of having a function instead of a table for setting
headers_in/headers_out is that you can use luaL_checkstring() to make
sure the given parameters are of the correct type. I don't know what
the patch will return if someone tries to set a table like in
headers_out['Foo'] = {Bar = 'baz'}

Maybe it is possible to set a metatable for headers_in/headers_out
that would check on __index and __newindex if the value validates with
luaL_checkstring (just thinking out loud).
