Thanks.

I'm thinking of putting something like the above in the set-up portion
of a couple of minor modes I'm working on.  It occurs to me though
if I were to turn the minor mode on, off, and then on again, I'll
be repeatedly adding my format to header-line-format.  I suppose one
way to prevent this would be to have the minor mode code try to 
detect if the header-line-format has already been modified by the
minor mode.  Does that sound like a reasonable/practical approach?
