Flash Range header workaround?

I haven't found any user manual on the Varnish website... it seems to
me that varnish is quite flexible, but i don't know where to start.
Any pointer to some documentation / tutorial is welcome.

I have a simple use case:
I would like to request a partial document from a Flash movie [1].
Unfortunatly the "Range" header is blocked by flash. I wonder if I can
use Varnish for a work-around. like rewriting



and a "Range: bytes=10000-30000" header

or rewriting some custom "X-Oli-Range: " header to "Range: "

Is Varnish able to cache partial documents?
