I'd like to suggest an additional option for $.ajax() to allow an alternative Content-Type, eg: application/json

I'd like to send raw JSON data to a PHP script, but PHP requires that a Content-Type other than the usual 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded' is set before it allows you to access the raw request data (via $HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA).

This will also allow the correct submission of XML, and other formats.

I've attached a patch against ajax.js
