Well the simple approach would be to have several Assertors, and each one  
assert the things that they have tested.

Where you have multiple tools doing sub-testa, and then derive the results  
 from a collection of sub-tests, it is important to be able to refer back  
to them, I think. But the proposed evidence property would work for that,  
if you don't include al the Assertions.

Anyway, we are looking to implement that now in Hera, so I will send an  
example of how we propose to do it.
