Sometimes I need only a stub, but I have to use getMock(). This has two disadvantages. a) the reader may think that the tests uses the stub to verify something and (confusing) b) each stub will add up to the assert count (wrong).

addStub() will cure these issues.

You're right on the assertion count (not know what increases it), but the Test Double implementation is unique, so you can could build a mock with an object obtained via getStub() and a stub with an object obtained via getMock(). Maybe a getDouble() or getTestDouble() would be more clear?

Most of the work here would be doing all the needed doc updates and I don't really care and know enough to properly word this

Closing this in favor of #550 which is a bit more detailed.
