Your code is pretty much equivalent to this (untested).

class RequestHeadersManager(object):
    def __getattr__(self, field):
        if not hasattr(self, field):
            return None
    def __init__(self, headers, linesep):
        for header, value in parse_headers(headers,
            header = '_'.join(x.capitalize() for x in
            setattr(self, header, value)

You may want to add some error checking though!
