      Description

      Currently we ignore qvalues when negotiation between 'application/json' and 'text/plain' when returning JSON responses.

      Specifically, we test directly for 'application/json' or 'text/plain' in the Accept header. Different branches have different bugs, though. Trunk returns 'application/json' if 'application/json' is present at all, even if it's less preferred than 'text/plain' when qvalues are accounted for.

      We should follow the standard.
