This example is perfect, what failed is my understanding of things and
my ability to express what I've seen with my code.

I encountered this problem when I used the same code to generate
headers for client to send and for server to check. The generated
field names was in Mixed-Case (i.e. "Accept" and "Content-Type") so I
got the KeyError on server side. I expected this to be irrelevant,
following RFC's statement that "field names are case insensitive".

Anyway, I can live with this.
