Hi, for those interested, this is how I solved this problem: I modified
web/framework/__init__.py for setting the extra http headers we wanted. I
added new objects to the app.py for holding the http headers sent by the
proxy. Otherwise, it wasn't possible to retrieve them from os.environ at
this depth of the code. Then I modified tools/parameters/basic.py for
injecting these keys into the self.dynamic_options string variable that
holds the user function's name.
