I don't know why you would say that when it is contrary to accepted
unit testing practices and the behavior of assertions in other
testing frameworks in every other language otu there.

For isntance, jUnit doesn't continue executing the test past the first
failed assertion. Neither do unit testing frameworks in JavaScript or
Python or PHP, etc.

REQUIRE is the level you want by default, not CHECK.
