checks, the idea being you declare a policy for your development and testing environments,
and requests/responses that violate the policy will either log a warning to the error_log
or explicitly fail with a suitable error message, clearly telling the developer what they
have done wrong, with the expectation that the developer fixes this before the code sees production.

Very interesting, sounds generally useful to developers, and rounds out that
large gap in modules/test/ that we essentially offer very little for 'testing'
in terms of functional test modules.

Presume this means C-L and/or T-E chunked?
