Plump for auth header of: X-CKAN-API-KEY

When using the API, the apikey needs to be supplied in a header called 'Authorization'. Because some proxys / deployments use this header for other things, a configurable header was provided as an alternative, with default "X-CKAN-API-KEY".

Rufus suggests having *one* way for this. a) making this not configurable any more b) making X-CKAN-API-KEY the default

(keep Authorization allowed, but not documented, for backwards compatibility)
