Metadata is for communication between the job and the slave, not (only) for
setting HTTP headers.

Setting HTTP headers must be done with the metadata "customHTTPHeader"
where the value is a \r\n-separated string containing all the custom headers you
want to set.

Apparently that one is missing from kio/DESIGN.metadata...
Please tell me if it works and I'll add it there
