It used to be that you could just stick it into the server header and be
done with it, but with recent trends of security "experts" telling
everyone to go ServerTokens Prod, that doesn't really fly.
I can't currently remember any modules that does anything like this, as
most I can think of are really the server checking up on the client.
Adding a custom header seems like the obvious choice.
