I would find it useful to have more options to http.server SimpleHTTPRequestHandler:

1) The option to get the current directory in not only HTML, but represented in JSON for example. This could be an added --json flag in the main method of http.server, and an added corresponding method in SimpleHTTPRequestHandler much like list_directory but for JSON. 

2) Options to add more headers. For example I would find it useful to be able to add the header 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin'. This could be achieved by send_head in SimpleHTTPRequestHandler taking more arguments for specifying any additional headers to be added. 

This way a custom class can inherit SimpleHTTPRequestHandler, and in its own send_head method call e.g. super().send_head(extra_headers={'Access-Control-Allow-Origin','*'}).
