Dear Guilers,

When I use http-post, and I want to change the HTTP header called
"Content-Type", I seem to need to spell it as "content-type" in the
#:headers part of the 'http-post' section.  Other headers like "Accept"
do not seem to follow the same lowercase style route.

More confusingly, using something like:
  #:headers '((Content-Type . "text/csv"))

leads to outputting the "Content-Type" header twice.
Why is "content-type" special?

Then my next question is about "multipart/form-data" content types.
My code looks like this:

  #:headers `((content-type . ,(string-append
                                "multipart/form-data; boundary=" boundary))
              (Accept . "*/*"))

But that does not work:
  web/request.scm:184:10: In procedure build-request:
  web/request.scm:184:10: Bad request: Bad value for header content-type: 
"multipart/form-data; boundary=..."

This is, however, a valid Content-Type.

So, why does content-type need to be spelled out lowercased?
And why can't it handle "multipart/form-data"?

Kind regards,
Roel Janssen
