It seems there's no clear way to do this currently. Something similar
that's possible with URL formatting can be added. It could even be done
by quite similar method too. At the moment request headers can be
configured, but they are simply static with no run-time formatting.
The unclear way would be to use HTTP_AuthenticationHook, get the handle
to current request from somewhere, it's not passed to the hook, and then
use HTTP::Request's header() method to add 'X-Request-ID' and the
possible authentication headers.
I'd say a better method is to add support for headers that can be
optionally formatted, or possibly a hook for more flexible header handling.
