"content-type" header behavior from external processes is poorly defined
------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-552
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-552
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Infrastructure
    Affects Versions: 0.11
         Environment: CentOS5.3, Erlang R12
            Reporter: Christopher O'Connell
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 0.10.1


When returning headers from an external process, the behavior depends on capitalization, and
is radically different in each case.

Consider the external process return

a: { "code":200, "json": { "hello":"world" }, "headers": {} }.

If returned as (a), the server serves { "hello":"world" } with header "Content-Type: application/json".

If the json is modified to 

b: { "code":200, "json": { "hello":"world" }, "headers":  {"Content-type":"text/plain"} }
c: { "code":200, "json": { "hello":"world" }, "headers":  {"content-type":"text/plain"} }

If returned as (b) or (c), the server serves { "hello":"world" } with header "Content-Type:
text/plain, application/json".

If the json is modified to

d: c: { "code":200, "json": { "hello":"world" }, "headers":  {"Content-Type":"text/plain"}
}

If returned as (d), the server serves { "hello":"world" } with header "Content-Type: text/plain".

There should be one well defined behavior when a "content-type" header is returned from an
external process.

To reproduce this error, setup an external process and return json strings as specified above.
