"""
Pages in Django can are served up with custom HTTP headers containing useful
information about those pages -- namely, the content type and object ID.

This module contains utility functions for retrieving and doing interesting
things with these special "X-Headers" (so called because the HTTP spec demands
that custom headers are prefixed with "X-").

Next time you're at slashdot.org, watch out for X-Fry and X-Bender. :)
