For all those interested, I've just pushed a commit to the repo that
adds sendResponseStatus and sendResponseCreated. I *think* this is a
good choice in names, and I *think* it makes sense to make
sendResponseCreated its own function. However, it sort of makes sense
to include Created (and 202 Accepted) as part of the Redirect family
and just add appropriate constructors. On the other hand, they are
*not* technically redirects...

People's thoughts on this are appreciated.
