[Esapi-user] ESAPI 1.4.2

I would like to see in general (i.e. not specific to this version or
language) much more verbose "DEBUG" logging, particularly when it comes to
validating and encoding/escaping, so that one could for instance instruct a
development team who's using an adapter that I've built for them to turn it
to debug, re-run their tests, and send me the console output, where the
audit records are detailed enough to troubleshoot the security control in
question. For example, to output human-readable formatted bytes being
input/output. PKI toolkits, the better put-together ones, have something
similar, since debugging e.g. signatures can be equally painstaking.

This is something actually that the ESAPI for PHP team is working on as an
enhancement, to toot our own horns, as the first ESAPI team to publish an
ESAPI adapter according to the extended factory design pattern as defined in
the ESAPI design patterns doc.

For whatever it's worth!
