HttpLimitReqModule should return 429 not 503

Can we get a flag in HttpLimitReqModule to return a http status code 429
Too
Many Requests instead of 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable since this
is a
more accurate status code? I know that 429 is not officially defined,
but it
is a defacto-standard.

Perhaps something like:

 limit_req_exceeded 429;
