Thanks for saying this.

I personally felt that the original was easier to follow---given
that these tests do not have too many moving parts that may need to
be changed (in which case abstracting common parts out would allow
us to maintain only one copy which is a big win), being able to read
from top to bottom without having to read a function and recall what
the parameter was etc.
