Unforunately you can't. The SoupMessage provided in
resource-request-starting is for information only and you cannot assume
it is the same that is going to be sent to the server. You can poke its
headers and adjust other things, and those changes will be kept and
propagated to the message that ends up being sent, but connecting to
signals won't work unfortunately.

That is something we would like to improve on, but for now is what we
got. So your best bet is using SoupSession's signals instead.
