Yeah, I was thinking about that.  If it were so, then at least I'd have
one way to modify the behavior more modularly.

One thing I can't quite think my way out of is that the logging is done
in the response._finish() in
ZServer/PubCore/ZServerPublisher.py::27(__init__).  The problem is this
happens well after a bunch of other tear down has already completed,
such as resetting the SecurityManager.
