My apologies for taking so long to follow up with this fix.

I have on a couple occasions tried to implement this change to produce
the results you are going for, but without success.  I will keep trying
to get Apache / mod_perl to do the right thing.

The place that I am hung up on is actually having the initial status
line return the right response where it normally says:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

it should be possible to make it say "HTTP/1.1 200 Woof Woof" or whatever,
but these does not yet seem to work for me despite my best efforts.
However, it may still be possible to set a separate Status header:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Status: 200 Woof Woof

that may also be of use to you, but it would seem an incomplete fix to me.

Any thoughts?
