You're very right - I may have confused this commit message and the one
to switch to test_set_editor. I'll rewrite this commit message.

What do you think of something like this for the description:

    Use write_script from t/test-lib-functions.sh instead of cat,
    shebang, and chmod. This aids in readability for creating the script
    by using the named function and allows us to turn off interpolation
    in the heredoc of the script body to avoid extra escaping, since
    $SHELL_PATH is handled for us.
