Thanks, this indeed works just like calling run-hooks.  I didn't mean to
wax philosophical, just wondering whether running a hook function
explicitly in a test when it isn't automatically run as expected is
legitimate in the test environment, and given the existence of
ert-simulate-command, I conclude the answer is yes.  Thanks (once again)
for the pointer.
