I remember posting about this a long time ago. I think it was Aslak
that replied. I'd prefer a neater syntax for ordered expectations
across mocks. Not too long ago I was working on my database migration
tool that has to turn a graph of migrations into a linear sequence
before it can apply them, and obviously the order is essential. But
the specs look something like...
which is a bit hideous.
I'd prefer something like
but I guess that would complicate the implementation.
As it's a relatively uncommon thing I think probably just documenting
it is ok for now.
