Using the REST API to add a personal label to a page

I'm trying to add a personal label to a Confluence page via the REST API. My `/content/{0}/label` POST works for "regular" labels, but when I try to prefix my label with `my:`, which is what makes the label a personal label, the API returns http 500. Is this supposed to work and is broken, or is it no supported? Perhaps I'm not quoting the colon (:) properly. Anyone have a working example? I'm using Python 2.7 with the requests and json modules

I have to assume that, unless I'm doing something wrong with my example, that the feature to add personal labels via the API either doesn't exist, or is broken and won't be fixed.
