RoboHydra server
================
-RoboHydra is a testing tool for HTTP-based clients. You connect your
-clients to it and it responds with whatever you need for each request.
-It can also check the requests received from the clients to help you
-build test suites. As its behaviour is easy to change dynamically,
-RoboHydra is ideal for HTTP-based client testing, exploration and
-general poking.
-
-It can be used in any HTTP-based client-server architecture, like
-Javascript-heavy web application front-ends, clients of HTTP-based
-APIs, etc. It helps answering questions like "how would the client
-behave when it receives a certain response from the server?", "does
-the client send the correct request to the server when certain action
-is performed?", "what would happen if this request takes more than
-normal to process", or "what would happen if this request gets its
-response before this other request?".

A RoboHydra is composed of "heads", pieces of code that listen in a
given path and trigger a certain behaviour when a request for that
