Basically it's boiled down to manipulating r->headers_in and
r->request_body in a rewrite or access phase handler and then forward
to request object to the upstream handler (remember upstream is a
content handler pe se?) :)

ngx_headers_more has the code for the former while ngx_chunkin and
ngx_echo do have some examples for the latter :)
