Sending a Status header is the right way for a CGI script to tell the
server to send a different status code. For some reason, the server
isn't handling it properly in this case. My guess is that Bundle Buggy
is trying to do it the wrong way, when it should be using some
TurboGears- or CherryPy-specific method (like raising a NotFound
exception or somesuch). Or there could be a bug in something.

Well, that's if bzr is reporting the headers accurately. BB is slow/down
at the moment, so I can't check for myself.
