	</title>
	<para>
	    For the current request, a reply is sent back having the given code
	    and text reason. The reply is sent stateless, totally independent
	    of the Transaction module and with no retransmission for the
	    INVITE's replies.
	</para>
	<para>
		If the code is in the range 300-399 (redirect reply), the current
		destination set is appended to the reply as Contact headers.
		The destination set contains the request URI (R-URI), if it is
		modified compared to the received one, plus the branches added to the
		request (e.g., after an append_branch() or lookup("location")).
		If the R-URI was changed but it is not desired to be part of the
		destination set, it can be reverted using the function revert_uri().
	</para>
	<para>
		Custom headers to the reply can be added using append_to_reply()
		function from textops module.
	</para>
