Comment (by Carlton Gibson):

 Hey Jon.

 Thanks for the follow-up.

 Quick comments:

 1. Some helper would be better yes. `assertResponseException()` or such.
 2. The issue with the setting isn't that you invented it or not: rather
 it's using a setting, which has other purposes, to control the test-client
 behaviour.

 I like and use the current behaviour. Maybe one-day we remove
 `DEBUG_PROPOGATE_EXCEPTION`, for a custom `handler` subclass or such. What
 do I do then? (For me 🙂) clearly the right answer is a flag on
 `TestClient`, which we already have.

 (**Maybe** then swapping the default...? — but ''meh''... grrrr...)

 (Re, the churn, yes, if we think it's an improvement then the churn is
 worth it — I'm just not there as yet.)
