Not sure whether that would buy us that much.  You need a controlling 
process to start soffice and wait for its termination, anyway (and be 
that the shell spawned for a make recipe line).  Then, whether the "test 
setup" commands are executed from within soffice.bin or triggered from 
the controlling process doesn't make that much of a difference for 
debugging the actual test code, IMO.
