Use an User-Agent that will allow downloading from blip.tv fixes #325
This should be specific for the blip.tv InfoExtractor, IMHO.
Because if you change the user agent you have to re-test everything still works (some sites may serve you different content that breaks the site InfoExtractor), and you are specifically introducing it to be able to download from one site which is known not to work with the default user agent, so it's natural that you'd want to do that specific fix only in the specific situation.
Furthermore, having a common user agent like the one from Firefox allows you to easily test and debug situations with your common browser without having to install a user agent modifier extension, etc.

For activist reasons, we should not pretend to always be iTunes.
For technical reasons, we should allow information extractors to override the default user-agent from the std_headers dictionary, as it is not impossible to have one site (like blip.tv) serve the content for user-agent A, with another site serving content for user-agent B, with A != B, of course. :)
