Up to a point, Lord Copper.  There are a lot of little hacks in the
request_rec to which your point could reasonably apply.
Perhaps this one would look better if the field were called
"no_body" rather than "header_only".

Given that startingpoint, which is better/worse:
   - tag a small fix onto a hack that serves the same purpose?
   - introduce a whole new fix that serves the same purpose?
