If so, perhaps justifying the change based on that, not on
"consistency", would be a good idea.

        Side note: But would that mean you'd find it "confusing" to
        read output from 3700 and 5400?  Would "test writers should
        get used to it" be a workable alternative solution?

Since "test_cmp expect actual" and "test_cmp - actual <<HERE" are
_both_ valid forms that are useful for different situations, I do
not see a compelling reason to insist on one form is consistently
used and ban the use of the other.

So...
