It's going to stop when users are satisfied. :)  I highly doubt that we
will reach all possible headers.

Configurability is at least as expensive to maintain as a (not actually
endless) short stream of patches, but i understand different people have
different tradeoffs they're willing to make.

Can you suggest which kind of configurability you would prefer: complete
override, or differential modification?  And if so, why do you prefer it
over the other choice?  or should there be both?
