README: Echo headers

Useful container when debugging header/proxy issues. This will listen on any
port and just echo back all the headers it gets. Here's an example -- say you
have the following containers running locally:

$ docker ps
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                                COMMAND                CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                           NAMES

And you're having trouble with the headers on the api container since
requests to it pass through two proxies. You'd do something like:

$ docker stop api; docker rm api
$ docker build -t lightside/echo_headers .
$ docker run -d --name api -e SERVER_PORT=8000 -p 8006:8000 lightside/echo_headers

so now you have a container pretending to be api and listening on the same port.

You will need to restart containers linked to api so their hosts get refreshed properly.
