I understand.

I like Volker's source3/script/tests/test_wbinfo_sids2xids_int.py
quite a lot. It is a simple replacement of shell code, called by
a very slim shell wrapper source3/script/tests/test_wbinfo_sids2xids.sh

Of course, more advanced or conecptually better way would be
great. But then, we should first think about our test framework
in general. The current scheme that all tests for an environment
use the same environment after it has been brought up and keep
tainting it, instead of proper setup and teardown functions
and having dedicated smaller environments for each test suite
seem much more problematic for me.

Already did that.
