Arg!  Thanks for tracking this down!

Nope.  In fact I've been looking for a good name, but found no
interesting name.  The name is somewhat important since that's what's
displayed when you run the tests...

What would you people suugest:

        [ ] atm4sugar.m4        atshell.m4
        [ ] test-m4sugar.m4     test-shell.m4
        [ ] m4sugar-test.m4     shell-test.m4
        [ ]

Personally I like the last one.  In fact, I somewhat regret that
Autoconf uses and aclocal.m4 and not and, but that's too late.

Of course if we agree on `.at', the other guys would be renamed.  I
don't like the first one because it doesn't distinguish Autotest
source files from Autotest application files.
