The new 'ChieftainModule' class in the newer Comanche is interesting.
Congratulations and thanks to whoever did this.
One comment though. At the end of the #process: method, where the
comment reads "otherwise, the default response", it just returns nil.
In other words, "do nothing" is the default. I suggest we allow a
default that is a bit more meaningful than this. I suggest we be able
to install any Comanche module and use it as the default, and only
return nil as the default when there hasn't been a specific Comanche
module installed as the default handler.
So, we add a 'default' instance variable, give it a setter method, and
send the request to the default (if it exists) instead of answering nil.
But otherwise, I think the ChieftainModule is nice, clean,
straight-forward, and (of course) simple.
