For example, Solaris before version 11 had /bin/sh pointing to the old
Bourne Shell (which doesn't suppoert $(command) syntax).

== Backwards Compatibility Changes ==
+ * A shell that supports `$(command)`` syntax for command substitution is now
+ required for running the test suite. The test runner normally uses
+ `sh`, so if that is a shell that doesn't support `$(command)` syntax,
+ you can override it by setting `$HGTEST_SHELL` or by passing it to
+ `run-tests.py --shell <shell>`.
