Very very true.  Let's drop 3/3 if it is not testing anything new.

I do understand the concern 2/3 wants to address, and it would be a
real one to you especially if you come from Windows.  People on the
platform wouldn't be able to use shell scripts written in 12 years
ago or written with the promise we made to our users 12 years ago,
and unlike hardlink-capable platforms it incurs real cost to install
these individual binaries on disk.
