Ah, but the nice thing about the info command as a first run is that
it dumps out the full URL, makes for a nice check that you function is
working as expected. :)

Yeah yeah, that sounds reasonable. But I'm not used to writing tests
:) Which I know isn't really a valid excuse. Maybe I should jump
over and make the tests for everything before I proceed with the
remainder of the APIs (I'm a little over half done). I'll think on
it. Thanks for you comments!
