Is this because consolidation of the duplicated part of the tests
into a single helper makes it harder to instrument one test you are
interested in (or developing) for debugging?

It indeed is a problem, and cutting and pasting the same code to
multiple tests is one way to solve the problem (you can easily
instrument the copy in the test you are interested in while leaving
others intact), but I do not think that is a good solution.  A bugfix
or enhancement to the shared (or duplicated) part can be done by
touching one place only after this change, while with the current
code you have to repeat the same fix to all places, no?

Care to update this with a follow-up patch, so that I do not have to
keep track of minute details ;-)?
