Request class

A single HTTP request.

Instances of this class travel through a Controller chain to be responded to, sometimes acquiring new values as they go through controllers. Each instance of this class has a standard library HttpRequest. You should not respond directly to the HttpRequest, as Controllers take that responsibility.
