A couple of questions regarding tests:

sbox.build creates a working copy, right? If I want to create a
directory *in which* to call sbox.build, then where should I be
doing it? Presumably I need to do this under the test directory,
but then what variables/interface does the test harness offer me?

(I want to create a writable and unwritable directory to run the
commit from.)

Is '<envvar>=<value> <command>' portable?

(Rather than looking at how to integrate a pseudo-editor into the
test directories/PATH/etc, I thought I might invoke

        EDITOR="python -c 'import os; print os.getcwd()'" svn commit

but perhaps that only works on Unix-like OSs.)

Can anyone advise? Thanks!
