Hi there, I've got a question about testing my gin routes. Let's say I wanted to write a test that checks to make sure that specific routes require my authentication middleware.

func TestAuthRequiredRoutes(t *testing.T) {

    r := Router: gin.Default()

    var handlerName string = getFunctionName(somepackage.MyAuthFunction) // Uses reflection to get the string name of the function

    for _, route := range r.Routes() {
        t.Log(route.Method, route.Path, route.Handler)

In the example above, route.Handler is simply a single string that is the last gin.Handlerfunc in the stack. Is there a way to access all middewares in use for a particular route, so that I may test to see if it includes a specific function?
