Hi Steven,

I believe your explanation is spot on and makes a lot of sense. From a
documentation standpoint I can see why some are confused. Both the wiki and
the source code explicitly mention the AND (i.e. comma) condition being
affected by fail_on_single_reject but not the OR (i.e. pipe) condition.

If there are no objections I'd like to submit this tidbit to be included in
the fail_on_single_reject wiki entry.
