What did you think it was doing?

I think it's quite cool because it records the http transactions in yaml 
format, and
they can be easily added to the repository to be played again during the 
next run of the test.

I wonder if that only works with HTTP or is possible to generalise to 
any protocol.. (I don't see why not)
