Not sure.  At the least you'd have to worry about either getting a few
variables like TESTDIR, AWK, & CVS_RSH into the test script itself past your
'env -i' bootstrap or bury the 'env -i' call in the do_test's and then make
sure you get CVS_RSH & c. into the individual calls to CVS.

The bootstrap method would probably be more robust since some of the tests
call external functions directly then call 'pass' or 'fail' based on $?.
It's possible you'd also have to make exceptions to pass through variables
which configure awk, sed, diff, troff, and any other tools used by,
but maybe not as already overrides variables like LC_ALL to insure
uniformity of operation across platforms.
