The problem's we wanna let anonymonks vote too. The IP lock is released fairly soon btw - within a day or something, I'm not sure. There is really no good way to handle open polls on the internet - it might be possible if you need such a thing by identifying people by their PGP key or such, but that makes voting such a large effort that it only works when you have a real motivation and substantial reason for having to prevent ballot stuffing.

Makeshifts last the longest.

[Corion]: I have a prototype that permutes the get_parameters, but the values used for the get parameters should be different from the values used for the headers and potentially for parts of the URL
[Corion]: But yes, in general, my approach will be "split the URL into another set of parameters, generate an array of allowed values for each parameter and then NestedLoops() over the set"
[choroba]: hmm... so you need something like bag from Test::Deep, but not for checking, but for generation
[Corion]: This has the dual use of easily requesting sequential URLs and also being suitable for testing
[Corion]: For testing, I want to skip all tests with the same value(s) once one test fails to cut down on the number of failing tests
[Corion]: choroba: Yes, in a way I
[Corion]: ... I'm treating the incoming value sets as bags... Maybe I'll just put the burden on the user, at least in the first attempt at a full API. generate( headers => [{ 'Content-Type' => 'text/plain' }, {'Content-Type' => 'text/json' ] ), even ...
[Corion]: ... if that is cumbersome for the caller to specify. On the other hand, maybe there isn't that big a need for permuting the header values
