in thread Previously unseen error in connection with -X functions

BTW, I was once also in desperate need to override the filetest operators... so I'm pretty sure it cannot be achieved with the current implementation but also see the patch mentioned in footnote 2 in the post I linked to.

I personally believe that in that case one may use source filters as an extreme resource, but... they're generally deprecated and I presume even more so in the context of tests, which is most probably the one in which need of overriding and mocking functions is arising... (Was it yours too?)
