8 I've heard two positive comments on IRC and nothing else, so I'm
9 proceeding with this. I'll be adding these to the existing
10 /usr/portage/eclass/tests/, adding shunit2 to the tree, and beginning

13 Probably some for app-shells/bash would also be useful, since we seem to
14 pretty consistently run into weird breakage on new versions.
