Add 'head' http method support #19

It would be useful to have the ability to also process HEAD requests as an alternative to GET if you're looking for just the headers. While I suppose that we could create a head() convenience method, it seems like a lot of duplicate work.

Without being overly opinionated, Lambda API could respond to any HEAD request so long as there was a corresponding GET route for it and then short circuit the response to omit the body. If there were a specific response for HEAD requests, those could always be overwritten by an explicit head() route, although it should still probably enforce the response short circuiting.

I implemented this using just an alias for GET methods. Any HEAD request will match a corresponding GET path and return with a blank body.
