As we discussed, agreed that this is a bit hackish, but I think this
is a reasonable compromise and the hack is unlikely to break anytime
soon.  (Haven't looked at the specifics that were implemented though.)
 Therefore, I would personally not consider a "rewrite in sh" to be a
blocker for merging into head.

What's the plan for this?

Are the tests somehow disabled by default so that a user running the
full test suite is not tripped by this?

Or will all the panics and deadlocks be fixed before merging to head?

Thanks for doing this!
