Could the subversion test suite use this approach?

Require a real scripting language to create Bourne shell test scripts,
then ship the test scripts in the source tarball.

Developers will need the real scripting language, and installers will
need Bourne shell.

Best of both worlds, and only adds one more level of hairy complexity
to the test harness design. (-:
