getHeader incorrectly matches other headers containing name. See this example:

var assert = require('assert'),                                                                                                                                                                                                               
    request = require('request');                                                                                                                                                                                                             

var r = request('http://www.google.com', {                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    headers: {                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
        'Foo': 'bar',                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
        'Something-Else-Foo': 'not bar'                                                                                                                                                                                                       

assert.equal(r.getHeader('Foo'), 'bar');

which gives output:

  throw new assert.AssertionError({
AssertionError: "not bar" == "bar"
