Currently, no; the closest is the 'after' hook, but that runs after the route 
handler execution completes, but before the response is sent.

It could potentially make sense for us to add a new hook which fires once the 
request is complete - 'after_response', or 'after_response_sent' or something 
vaguely like that.

However, I think implementing that may be tricky thanks to the way Plack 

We'll have to have more of a think about this one :)
