After a quick grep, it seems script_helper is really in the minority
(it's only used in three test files) while ad hoc calls to subprocess
with sys.executable are all over the place. I'd rather open a separate
feature request for that new script_helper function than convert all
uses of subprocess in this issue.

Ah, indeed. Thanks!
