If you want to log the output of every request, you probably want to
wrap finalize and save the file after it runs.

If you want to run an arbitrary request against your application and see
the result, you want the Subrequest plugin.  It would be better for your
app to not depend upon your app, though.  Calling a method is simpler,
faster, and cleaner than running an entire request and capturing the
result, so try to structure your app in such a way as to allow that.
