Accept: */* in LrHttp.get/post

Hi everybody,

I am interfacing a REST service that can either return XML or JSON which it will decide upon the value of the Accept Request Header.

I can set it, of course, like this:


LrHttp.get(url, {{field='Accept', value='application/json'}})


Lightroom (3.6 here) then sends this header:


GET /blaa HTTP/1.1

Host: whatever

Accept: */*, application/json


Now the service return HTTP/400 because of the '*/*' in the Accept-Header (reproducible with curl).

I have no control over the service as I am only a consumer, is there any chance I can tell LrHttp to send the Accept header without prepending '*/*'?


Thanks in advance,
