Correct. [[ ... ]] is new and spelling out "test" indeed is more
traditionalist than [ ... ], but for contrib/subtree/ that does not
work with anything but bash, I do not think such a rewrite has much
merit in the first place.  Being consistently "bash script" (as
opposed to being old-style) is more appropriate for it.
