   I'm filing this via obnam-dev so others aware and can help if they
   feel like it, and so that I don't forget to look at this.
   The Obnam yarn test suite (yarns/* in the source tree) is run using
   the yarn tool I wrote. The Obnam tests are implemented in shell, and
   are a bit more complicated than is good. Rewriting them all in Python
   using the yarn Python library would make it possible to simplify
   things, and I think it'd be worth the effort.
