Section 2, setRequestHeader

Comment: 
The section on setRequestHeader says:


--
If the header argument is in the list of request headers either use multiple headers, combine the values or usea combination of those
--


It then gives and example in which the headers are combined algorithmically (basically, concatenating them). However, some headers, such as Accept-Language, use q-weights and other structure and this approach may not work acceptably in those cases. Perhaps provide some guidance on these cases?
