individual classes.

I didn't know about this function, but looking at it it seems to be in direct violation of
our style guide at (https://google.github.io/styleguide/cppguide.html#Static_and_Global_Variables)
so we should probably look into deprecating it rather than promoting further usage.

But even w/o that issue, I'm not sure that

```
  BadRequest()
    : Response(Status::string(Status::BAD_REQUEST), Status::BAD_REQUEST) {}
```

is better than

```
  BadRequest()
    : Response("400 Bad Request.", Status::BAD_REQUEST) {}
```


I dont think putting it in the default constructor of `Response` is a good idea, because we
more or less endorse constructing responses like this

```
  process::http::OK response;
  response.type = response.PATH;
  response.path = path;
  response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/octet-stream";
  response.headers["Content-Disposition"] =
    strings::format("attachment; filename=%s", path).get();
```

and we would need to audit all usages of such responses to ensure they're not confused by
suddenly having an additional body.
