Subject Re: What is the preferred method to assert multiple headers?
Date Mon, 11 Mar 2013 17:14:08 GMT
I recommend science. Try it in a few different ways and induce different
failure scenarios (one broken, several broken) and see how things are
reported to you compared to how you'd like to know about what's broken.
