Is there a mojo-equivalent to HTTP::Exception that will let be throw an exception with a specific HTTP response code?

Likewise, is a plugin or documented method for overriding the `reply.exception` helper to use a specific template/layout when there are errors?

That's helpful for customising the error pages. But how do I update the HTTP status code?

I should be more specific. In a "before_render" method, overriding "status" in the arguments hash or in the stash does not actually change the status.  I'd like to be able to change the status from 500 to something else.

As per discussion in https://github.com/mojolicious/mojo/issues/1622, one can use something like

     $c->reply->exception('Division by zero!')->rendered(400)
