Not all AMQP applications use the message headers, so it's plausible
that no-one has yet bothered to add support to the Perl clients.  Though
it would be a fairly significant omission, given that the headers are
(potentially) a part of every AMQP message.  I'm not aware of other
clients that take this short cut.
