so in building my first repoze.bfg app, it's occurred to me that i'd like to
use a custom Request and Response classes, just simple subclasses of the WebOb
defaults so that i can set configurable class variables like default_charset.
unless i'm missing something in the code, there's currently no support for this.
how would folks feel about the following changes:
- in repoze.bfg.router, the paster config would be checked for "request_class"
setting, which would be a dotted path to a request class to use. absence of
this setting means use the default class, nothing changes.
- every place that a response object is currently instantiated, use
request.ResponseClass instead of explicitly using the WebOb class.
AFAICT, response objects are instantiated in the following repoze.bfg modules:
in the 'view' and 'wsgi' modules, we're already holding the request object
when the response is instantiated, so there's very little to change. in all
of the other modules, the response is being instantiated in a
the biggest change, then, would be to have all of the render-to-response
methods start requiring request objects as arguments. this could be optional
at first, w/ a deprecation warning if it's left out, until such time as we
might see fit to force the issue.
