in the case of EchoPingHttp, this is limitation in the external
echoping program. You might want to suggest this feature to the
echoping author. Look at <http://echoping.sf.net> for more

As for the Curl probe, I just implemented an option to specify any
extra arguments to the curl program. This will be in Smokeping 2.0rc3,
which will be released Real Soon Now(TM).

You'll be interested in the '--header' curl option; there's an example
of how to do what you want in the manual page of the Curl probe.
