are there any plans to increase the amount of information you can get
out of http_ calls in a script to get data from your visiors. are
there already function calls for every component of the header?

I think I understand your question correctly...

PHP is a server side language and has (I believe) no control on what is sent
from the client. PHP merely reads what is delivered from the client
browser - and each browser version/type provides different info.

Not just that, but some tools (like Norton Internet Security 2003 which I
use) will change/hide some of the information, like the web browser being
used so you really cannot guarantee any of the info provided from any of the
headers - If you really want to grab some info from the client (with the
users permission) I'd suggest something like JavaScript though even then,
you cannot be sure that the client has that enable/available.
