Looks like the set() method has been removed from 2.3. I remember using
it many a time in 2.2 and 2.1 to do this kind of thing though.

RESPONSE.set() worked in the same way as REQUEST.set() but without
messing REQUEST up (which in the same light is just a way for the
browser to communicate with you)

Looks like RESPONSE.__setitem__ maps things directly to the setHeader()

This does sound like the way to go.
