Description: ------------ I've been developing a proxy script based on your excellent work and found two features that is very useful for me but i have to hack to implement. 1) Custom 'Host:' header in request. Now when requesting '', the 'Host:' header sent was Host: Even if I set a Host header by calling setHeader, it doesn't work as expected. I think it'll be very useful for a front end proxy program if a custom 'Host:' header overrides the default one from URL. 2) A function that returns not decoded body I need a getRawBody() function which return body directly instead of getBody() function which decodes body. This is really useful if HTTP_Request2 is used as a proxy instead of a pure client. Many thanks, Robert

Inability to set a custom Host header is an oversight, will fix that. If you need to access an encoded body then you can use Observers, parts of the (still encoded) body will be provided with 'receivedEncodedBodyPart' events.

1) Great. 2) I still think it's more straightforward to add a $raw parameter to getBody(). The 'receivedEncodedBodyPart' event seems to be triggered only in Socket Adapter. Cheers, Robert

I don't think PHP's cURL extension allows to disable builtin decoding so Curl adapter can only provide already decoded body.
