This is great suggestion and related to the question I had at the bottom
of the document of what does juicer return with valid calls, but invalid
input. I'll look closer at 405s and other server error codes.

Another great suggestion. I'll put this on the wiki. I hadn't considered
internationalization for our error messages, but it's probably just as,
if not more, important there than any where else.

BTW, does anyone have any recommendations for internationalization
libraries for python? Is gettext adequate?
