Good idea.

The old-style tests are large (i.e. many of the "*.inp", "*.good", "*.sed"
have many lines).

The coreutils' perl-style test favor smaller input if I'm not mistaken.
Do you want to rewrite each old-style test into a separate perl test file
(with all data embedded in the test) ?

Alternatively I already have a version where there's one shell-based script
for each test (and it includes the input +program + expected output) -
for the old-style test it might be simply than conversion to perl.

I'll post it to the list for reference.
