At the fact that you had to go a convoluted route because you cannot
just run setup_tool in subshell and do translate_merge_tool_path
after that, because the latter needs to look at the shell variable
the former sets.

Of course it is.  The current callers of setup_tool may need some
adjustments, but that should be fairly trivial, I hope.
