I actually changed the implementation to use response.setBody(), which 
does some nice paper work (setting the content length headers and so 
on), but then to override response's setBody method after the fact, so 
that exception doesn't munge it any more.

I think it might be a nicer player now at the expense of being tricky.

In any case, the implementation works the same.
