Some inspiration, what sort of helpers can be for shell see LTP shell API [1].
These helpers tests help tests to be short, readable and with unified output.
(I like library variables [2] which are self describing and making test even
shorter), setup and cleanup functions called automatically, ...
The same applies for C API [3] (e.g. SAFE_*() helpers for handling errors, ...).

I wonder if there is even any interest of having any sort of helpers or even
framework for shell, when so far there was nothing.
