IOW, I would need to add a new test-tool (attached) and then start
this test like so:

	if ...
	then
		PATHNAME=quoted:colon:\\060zero
	else
		PATHNAME=quoted\\060zero
	fi
	UQPATHNAME=$(test-tool unquote-c-style \""$PATHNAME"\")

and change the last test to

	test_path_is_file "$UQPATHNAME"

if we really wanted to test that the the PATHNAME is treated as a
c-style quoted string.

I am on the fence.  We do not have an immediate need, in the sense
that nobody needs to encode "0" as "\060" and trigger the unquote
codepath in real life.  But it does feel prudent to make sure we can
grok C-quoted pathname as we claim in the documentation.

And the resulting change to the test does not look _too_ bad (and
the new test-tool certainly does not hurt, either).

So...
