I see what you're trying to do there, you're trying to get these in
before Monday ;-)

As others have noted before #respond: gives you full access to the
response allowing you to set any header or content you like:

html submitButton
    onClick: (html jQuery ajax
        respond: [ :response |
                created; "HTTP 201"
                contentType: WAMimeType applicationJson.
            response stream nextPutAll: '{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "result":
19, "id": 1}' ]);
    with: 'Replace'
