Message from VCC-compiler:
Symbol 'req.http' has wrong type (none):
At: ('/etc/varnish/default.vcl' Line 182 Pos 9) -- (Pos 16)
    set req.http.7hello = "world";

Symbol was builtin
Running VCC-compiler failed, exited with 2
VCL compilation failed

same code works when using a letter before the number :

set req.http.x7hello = "world";

before submitting a bug a report in github wanted to check is someone is
familiar with this issue ?
