Make XMLHttpRequest or headersAvailable to "success" callback of post

I would like to be able to check the Response headers of a $.post() call in the success callback. In my case, the response might either be text, or json, and I'd like to vary my behavior based on the Content-Type. I believe I can work around it with the ajaxSuccess event, but I think a more direct solution would be helpful.

I've attached a patch that works-around my request, but taking the appropriate action in httpData based on the content-type (only if the user hasn't specified a content-type).

Use the 'complete' callback, it does receive the XMLHttpRequest object.
