    When this whole thing started, the whole point of nesting the tap was to have something like.

        ok 1 - Foo
            begin 1.1
            1..2
            ok 1 - foo
            ok 2 - bar
            end 1.1
        ok 2 - Bar

    What changed so suddenly that we can't work with dot-nested any more?
    • Anyone who really cares strongly about this should subscribe to the TAP development list [testanything.org]. It would be terribly unfair of me to try and summarize all of the arguments against backwards compatibility for two reasons:

      1. I'm biased and that might make me unconsciously misrepresent the arguments.
      2. Since I've not been convinced, I could be misunderstanding the arguments.

      There are also archives [testanything.org], but they're currently unavailable. I've dropped an email about the problem.

    • The archives are now available. You can read some of the reasons in the nested TAP thread [testanything.org].
