I do agree with you on this.

In this case setting the user-agent to exactly what the SD script asks
seams logical to me.

I don't know if it harms or not but I see this as some kind of a bug. If
we provide an option to override the user agent, it might override it.
Maybe the name of the option/variable or the help text is not suitable ?
