#3034 closed enhancement (fixed)

Added "mimetype" param to django.views.generic.simple.direct_to_template

I think direct_to_template is the only generic view that doesn't take a "mimetype" param. This patch remedies that. The use-case that drove me to write this was wanting robots.txt to have the right Content-Type. I'm sure there are others (CSS generation and JS generation come to mind).

I've tested this with a dummy project and via (though direct_to_template doesn't seem to be covered).
