def condition(etag_func=None, last_modified_func=None):
Decorator to support conditional retrieval (or change) for a view
The parameters are callables to compute the ETag and last modified time for
the requested resource, respectively. The callables are passed the same
parameters as the view itself. The Etag function should return a string (or
None if the resource doesn't exist), whilst the last_modified function
should return a datetime object (or None if the resource doesn't exist).
If both parameters are provided, all the preconditions must be met before
the view is processed.
This decorator will either pass control to the wrapped view function or
return an HTTP 304 response (unmodified) or 412 response (preconditions
failed), depending upon the request method.
Any behavior marked as "undefined" in the HTTP spec (e.g. If-none-match
plus If-modified-since headers) will result in the view function being
