> Suggested improvement for Content-Type of responses
> Return Content-Type: application/json unless:
> * client provides an Accept: header; and
> * header includes text/plain, text/* or */*; and
> * header does not have application/json earlier in the list
> This is not proper RFC 2616 negotiation - q factors are ignored - but maybe it's better
than current behaviour. Tested with Firefox (which still views responses as text), but not
other browsers.
