With the 3.254 release you now have a constant pattern for
short circuit testing, but I'm wondering if you would
prefer to have two patterns. One for short circuit testing
on the client side, and another for short circuit testing
on the server side. Without this, it would make the
developers go through some hoops to move the
short circuit around.
