So do you think it's possible to add the logic to a middleware object and
add the middleware object to the stack?

Put something like the following in the extension?

  extension_config do |config|
    config.middleware.use GeoIpRedirect
  end

I'm pretty new to middleware, so I'm not certain that this will get called
every time...
