Thanks for the clarification and your reply.  I've taken to ignoring request
and response bodies for now since in my use case, the auth_request backend
really only needs to respond with redirections for Single Sign On.  

Is the thinking that this may eventually be supported by other modules like
FastCGI/uWSGI or is it related to some technical issue?
