That sounds like a pretty major effort.  Are you suggesting that it
(or even part of it) should be part of 4.0?

Getting rid of bash scripts sounds great, but we're talking about 420
scripts - many of them quite opaque and thus tedious to port to
another language/framework.  I suspect that some of these tests will
linger in their current form for quite some time to come.
