... which means that you in fact does not actually make a RFC1867 multipart
post, since it requires the Content-Type: libcurl uses... but let's not get
stuck on formalities.

The only solution so far is the one I mentioned back then: skip libcurl's
mulitpart code and create the whole multipart chunk yourself and send it with
CURLOPT_POST.

I would accept patches that would allow the main Content-Type: for multipart
formposts to be changed without having to resort to plain header-replacements,
just because of the reason that the normally supplied header also contains the
boundary string and since that is generated internally it is not easily
replaced by an application.
