If a dependency on Python is acceptable, then you could also consider

  Ahum, the dependancy would be just for "make tests" not for building.

  This sounds like the right idea to unify the tests, the only problem
would be platforms where UNIX make and shell like tools are available
but where Python is not available.

That is also my biggest concern.

  well, would "make test" work on such platform currently, I doubt it,
 it would be partial at best since it already requires python.
