Defines functions sizelimit_route

Documented in sizelimit_route

#' Limit the size of requests
#'
#' This route is meant for being called prior to retrieving of the request body.
#' It inspects the `Content-Length` header and determines if the request should
#' be allowed to proceed. The limit can be made variable by supplying a function
#' to the `limit` argument returning a numeric. If the `Content-Length` header
#' is missing and the limit is not `Inf` the response will be set to
#' `411 - Length Required`, If the header exists but exceeds the limit the
#' response will be set to `413 - Request Entity Too Large`. Otherwise the route
#' will return `TRUE` and leave the response unchanged.
#'
#' @param limit Either a numeric or a function returning a numeric when called
#' with the request
#'
#' @return `TRUE` if the request are allowed to proceed, or `FALSE` if it should
#' be terminated
