As written, the request_started signal cannot take into account any of the specifics of the aforementioned request in a connected handler. The signal provided args should add the WSGI environ to the emitted signal to allow connected handlers to act related to the request's context.

I'm wondering if whatever you're planning to do in the signal receiver wouldn't be better implemented in a middleware.

But maybe that's just my phobia of signals :)

For many (most?) cases, I'd agree with you - middleware has that explicitness, where as signals are automated magic. However the signal is the absolute earliest place to modify the handling of a request - for cases where middleware may even be too late, doing work with a signal handler could be the best option.
