Description

Currently theres a get_messages method in the django messages framework which could be used to get messages.
At the moment it's not covered in the documentation.

There is only one note about how to avoid clearing messages.

https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/contrib/messages/#expiration-of-messages

Btw. this cleanup needs to be done, since more and more people use ajax or an REST API to query some django stuff. so you can't access the messages in the template. It would be good if somebody will introduce the

get_messages(request)

function in the documentation.
