This middleware allows a your django project to act as a HTCPCP (Hyper
Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol) server. If the user requests to BREW
a coffee, and it is not on the list. Then it will get a `406 Not

If the request is not a HTCPCP (BREW) Request then the middleware will
quit leaving django to handle the request.
