    More specifically, change part of the header for each request.
    An obvious option is to add a counter to the "user-agent", and to add
    a "blur" factor to the language options.

If you have the same IP address each time, they will know anyway that
it is you.

However, if you change the user agent every time the IP address changes,
that will do more good.  But you need to vary among user agent strings
which are themselves fairly common.
