I would like to, but have tried before and it's actually very hard.á We store several key paths as relative paths in the test suite framework -- path to where all the tests' working copies should be created, path to where the read-only Greek repository is to be found, etc. -- without being clear what they're relative to.á Some of them are inter-related, and so the simple trick of changing directory to the WC dir and then setting sbox.wc_dir='' only works as long as we don't then try to use certain other functions such as cloning the WC or accessing the pristine Greek repo.á In other words, it's a hack.

Yup, that's a concern.
