I'll mark it as an "Open Issue" in the PEP, providing sample code to show 
how it's used.

Might as well have *something* left for folks to argue about.  Maybe it'll 
provide a nice distraction from PEP 318.  :)

Yeah, but not hard for the server to fix, either.  While I dislike forcing 
either side to have any "boilerplate" code, there will be fewer 
servers/gateways than middleware and frameworks, and being able to use 
email.Message should make response header manipulation as easy for 
middleware as request header manipulation is now.
