But before you rathole there, better focus on writing the tests

also in the old implementation).
Please base your work on the current "for-master/cmdline-output" branch.
This includes the stdout/stderr change that I mentioned in my email
yesterday and also cleans up the output so that it is the same, with or
without syncevo-dbus-server. I'm currently running one final sanity
check on the automated test server and then will merge that branch into
Output checking is hard. Some parts of the output are variable, but
skipping over those parts entirely would miss cases where undesirable
output is included in them.
For example, the current TestCmdline would not catch the extra "[ERROR]
command line execution failure" added by the execution inside the
syncevo-dbus-server when the operation failed.
Probably a stricter regex would do the job: "output must start with
exactly this [ERROR], followed by this [INFO] line and then more [INFO]
lines of this format".
In the meantime I'll merge these changes into the ccs-pohly branch.
