Currently, std.net.curl.HTTP.postData hardcodes the content type to
application/octet-stream for ubyte[] and text/plain for
[unqual,const,immutable](char)[]. The method that lets you specify content
type, _postData, is a private function.

The workaround is unreasonably complicated: since headers are a singly-linked
list, you can't just use addHeader to replace the default Content-Type header;
you have to iterate over them and add them back, substituting Content-Type with
the desired value. Either that, or use the low-level Curl object directly,
which defeats the purpose of having a high-level API.

This one has caused me a lot of trouble as well.  I'll sort out a pull request.

I've already done a pull request, but it's being held up because we're not sure
what's the best API for this. See:
