Please don't merge it down for now. I've got a WIP resubmission of this
which rewrites most of the later part of the series & addresses various
issues raised.

Re: the concern raised in xmqqa7xsaqki.fsf@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx I
think it makes sense to just document (and I can do that if you agree)
that:

    test_expect_success SOME_PREREQ,$SOME_OTHER_PREREQ,$ANOTHER_ONE [...]

Will work as far as prereqs goes even though the variables might be
empty. It's much less verbose than the proposed alternative, and easy to
support.

Refresh my memory, that means merge down post-2.16.0 at this point,
right?
