Take a look at this email I just sent:!topic/kyua-discuss/yhcDuchVtrs

The new code I'm prototyping in that repository has atf-check
functionality that can be invoked on shell functions, so it would
solve your problem. (Don't start using that code just yet given that
it's not even merged into the master branch, but please let me know if
you'd be interested in it!)
