You're right, I don't quite know the proper terminology, so I'm being a bit
unclear. What I'm really curious about is the mix of headers and body that
is included. Mostly the body, to be truthful. Does it matter? In my first
experimentation with it, when I returned a 200 response with a text/plain
body of "OK", Amaya claimed there was an error of "OK". So I believe I'm
missing something.

What I'd love is just simple traces of a 200 response, an error response,
and even a 201 response would be nice.

Thanks for your help,
