ErrorDocument directive : you can (internally) re-direct a 401 response 
from the back-end, to a local location that would be a script e.g.

The script in question would (probably) need to be able to get at the 
original response headers and modify them prior to forwarding the 
response to the browser.
I have never used this myself, so I don't know quite "where" this script 
obtains the original 401 response. (I mean, does it just read the 
original response on its STDIN, or else where ?).
