When creating a soap client, I would also like to be able to identify custom HTTP headers.

See attached patch, please include in next release (which will also require the documentation to be included)

Test script:
$client = new SoapClient('http://london:8180/testing/headerserver.php?wsdl',
        "custom_http_header"=>"New: test header"

You can already send HTTP headers through stream context.

$opts = array(
    'header'=>"New: test header\r\n"

$context = stream_context_create($opts);

$client = new SoapClient(NULL, array(
    	      'stream_context' => $ctx,
    	      'location' => 'test://',
    	      'uri' => 'test://'));

I've seen the use stream contexts answer so many times and it has never worked for me. I am creating the stream just as specified, with the only options being the http=>header=>"myheader: value\r\n"

I did notice that some people get it to work. So my question is, when you specify it and it doesn't come through in HTTP headers, why doesn't it ? Why no errors complaining about whatever was wrong with the header string?

I've gone over php_http.c -- I can't tell why but the block at line 695 doesn't seem to be being executed for me, running PHP 5.3.2.
