This sounds like an easy fix compared to converting all the existing tests.
 I do like the idea of renaming it since some tests aren't really testing
the layout.

As a first step, I suggest we make the test controller object available

But I'm not sure if converting all the existing tests is feasible or worth
the effort.  Is there any practical problem other than being semantically
