/bin/echo, -n "\c", tr, .... blech. (Is that a shell built-in? It should
be. :-)

    print "Running all tests in path-test...",

is completely portable. Of course, that's Python.

IMNSHO, everone's efforts would be much better spent rewriting all those
shell scripts in Python. Then all of a sudden, we'd have tests running
on Win32 without cygwin. Oh, joy!

(BTW, to run those tests in cygwin, I have to pipe every `pwd` through
sed, because cygwin insists that c:/ iw in fact /cygdrive/c/, which svn
of course barfs on. Nice.)
