The standard test suite is often quite limited, for example, it doesn't
test for the case when the cwd of strace differs from the cwd of its
tracee, which is especially relevant when relative paths are processed
with --secontext.  If you could extend some of traditional tests to cover
this case and make --secontext tests just use them, it would be indeed
a good addition to the test suite.
