I see, only verified(safe) pkgbuilds will be used in the test-suite,
they've been checked by someone(trusted). The benefit to using another
parser built with yacc/lex is that it's no need to execute anything
which would pose a security risk since they are already verified to be
safe, there is no security issue, it can be a proper shell to parse
it, hm then I agree with you.
