Yes, if I remember it correctly, setting status to whatever, then
returning OK will work. You will probably need req.send_http_header() as
well, because I think that that is what actually sends the status line

The constants are just integers. I like using them because they are more
descriptive than 302.

Can you e-mail me off-list where specifically it is?
