     Set a template_name attribute in your class with the template name for this view.
     If not set, non-ajax requests will return an HTTP error.
+    If you want to return a specific HttpResponse in your httpmethod_context() method,
+    raise a ResponseWrapperException with your response wrapped in.
+    class ResponseWrapperException(Exception):
+        """Wraps a HttpResponse object."""

             return HttpResponseBadRequest
