Ok.

What new headers do you want nginx to generate? (And how would you
configure nginx to do so?)

I suspect that stock nginx does not do this; but maybe something could
be done with one of the embedded languages.

I wonder -- would changing the upstream to send an X-Accel-Redirect
header, along with its for-this-response headers, be useful here? If
so, nginx could potentially send the same local file contents, with
fresh-from-upstream headers each time.

That could avoid doing anything with the nginx cache; and all of the
"header generation" logic would be on the upstream server.

And it might be simpler than patching nginx, if that is what is necessary.

Cheers,
