Thanks for the pointer, Igor.
I can't quite see how to use this to generate *solely* a new header to
add to the subsequent proxy_pass'd requests. I was /imagining/ that,
if I were get into the depths of actually writing a module, it'd
expose something like

  proxy_set_header X-UUID $new_uuid;

I'm definitely /not/ looking to pass a cookie back to the consumer -
that's not the aim at all, and wouldn't work in my architecture.
Am I missing something obvious about how to use this module?
