Before I answer any more of your questions I need to know what type of
application you are writing. The answer to this and to several of your
previous questions is "it depends" and so I really can't give a useful

Normally, there is absolutely no reason for you to get the raw headers -
you get them semi parsed in the response object which you can deal with
in the after filters. The fix that I pointed you at was a hack that I
needed to handle something else but is not a general solution. This is
already handled by the default way libwww works.
