"We're sprinting (Stockholm) at the moment and plan to solve this bug like this:

Instead of setting a status_code attribute, we would like to use a redirect_class. The reason for this is that HttpResponseRedirectBase has built in protection against unsafe protocol redirections. If we use a HttpResponse object and let the user supply their own status code they will probably miss that security issue, which would be a shame."
