But then you would have to use mod_headers to set the headers anyway in
a real world setup, since otherwise the calling script would not learn
whether the request succeeded due to lack of a response header that'd
allow reading the response; so this does not limit you in any way. Also
note that doing this you cannot use a CGI script to handle DELETE, PUT,
etc.
