Ideally, this should be done via Lua code running in the nginx output
filter, i.e., the body_filter_by_lua or body_filter_by_lua_file
directives. But you'll lose the ability to call those ngx_lua APIs
that require network I/O (like ngx.location.capture and
ngx.socket.tcp) from within the Lua code in this very context.
The body_filter_by_lua and body_filter_by_lua_file are on our TODO list.

I think so :) The header_filter_by_lua and header_filter_by_lua_file
are already implemented (by liseen) but not those body filter hooks.
