  • Returns codes can be a legitimate concern, but in many cases these are unavailable anyway. Also, context does not change whether or not a test succeeded or failed, it changes the interpretation of whether it succeeded or failed. However, if something fails, it's better to default to failure in the absence of more information.

    As for the v14/v15 issue, if we guarantee that TAP core doesn't change, we're safe. This entire work is designed to eliminate the need to break backwards-compatibility. I think we were far too rushed to make such a decision lightly.
