      Description

      When authenticating using HTTP POST/REST, sometimes I need the request to return response headers - such as return a cookie. Using the HTTP POST/REST Client steps, I am unable to get access to this information.
      For example, I would like to do the following in 2 HTTP POST steps (http://developer.gooddata.com/api/auth.html)
      1. Authenticate (login and receive cookie)
      2. Request Token (which requires cookie from previous step)

      We checked the code and it seems that response headers are not returned anywhere (that's where the cookie sits).
