That is, this method doesn't allow to return an empty body. If it is ok to
return fully rendered page together with the "302 Found", then it is
probably enough to call request.redirect, that's right.

So the render method from my snippet should probably look like

def render_redirect(self, url):
     def _(ctx, data):
          return "Redirecting"
     return _

Thanks for your hint.
