adriancole commented on issue #142: include user agent in http reporting
   probably we should prefer user agent formatting right?
   User-Agent: <product> / <product-version> <comment>
   Common format for web browsers:
   User-Agent: Mozilla/<version> (<system-information>) <platform> (<platform-details>)
   Ex here's FF actually sending during this issue
   Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.13; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0
   Notable change is slash between thing and version of thing. Also, note there are multiple
groups from least to most specific.
   I'd guess that we could do something to tell it is zipkin api, if we like... or skip that
and save bytes by not sending the prefix. However, with the prefix different language reporters
can have common analysis (if that's the goal)
   Ex. assuming this is the latest version of the zipkin api endpoint, we can say zipkin/2.1.0
or zipkin-api/2.1.0 after that give the version of the module in use
   zipkin/2.1.0 zipkin-reporter-okhttp3/2.9.3
   carefully cc'ing @apache/zipkin-committers
