I would like to emphasize that having a single file was a goal: I
meant the test suite to be easy to copy, to install, etc.  I would
have loved to have split tests though, so that you could easily re-run
a specific test in its own testsuite.dir/111/ directory.  The problem
was to make independent split tests without using functions.  Now that
we can have functions, that's much more doable.  I once thought about
using shar to build testsuite as a single program that would expand
into more independent scripts, and a master to drive them.  It would
also ease the creation of a common store where some tests could share

I never had time to do it.  Maybe, if the idea looks sound, someone
will... :)
