containing the atom 'shoot', as it will ensure Cowboy has been able to fully
initialize the socket. Anything you do past this point is up to you!

You should definitely look at the cowboy_http_protocol module for a great
example of fast request handling if you need to. Otherwise it's probably
safe to use `{active, once}` mode and handle everything as it comes.
