Ok, here is the second (modified patch) which contains a script so that no modifications are required to existing tests.

I am uploading it as a second patch, so that the first one is left as a reference.

As a sidenote, I fail to see convincing reasons for why we would want the second solution more than the first. The first one looks cleaner to my eyes. The only downside I can see to the original approach is breaking a couple of tests, which is something that can be fixed easily without even making it to the repo (running the tests in 2-3 could help find all possible broken tests beforehand).

Could someone explain to me why the second solution is more desirable?
