Stupid question, does Mapserver return a GeoTIFF if you request image/tiff?

MapProxy will make two source requests when you're requesting two layers with different sources. Say one from layer a and one from layer b. It will make only one request if the sources are identical, except for the layer parameter of course. MapProxy will still make two requests to the same server when one layer has a different request format, for example, or when there is another layer in between (layers=lyr1srv1,lyr1srv2,lyr2srv1).  That's what I meant with 'merging source requests'. If MapProxy makes multiple requests, then it will merge the image responses.
