Right.  M4sh, pronounced Mash.

That's too heavy, IMHO, and makes it useless hairy to write composed
tests where we would have naturally used && and || etc.

But maybe I get your idea wrong.  Could you make it explicit?

Mine was AS_TEST_X(FILE) == test (-x|-f) $1.  I think keeping TEST is
not too bad, that's what we do with AS_DIRNAME, AS_MKDIR etc.   ?
