  119.         startup, by making sure the remote shell is ready before we start

  135.       · Add helpers for generating random strings.
  136.       · Make it possible to hook arbitrary calls on scenario end. This is useful
  137.         for dynamically adding cleanup functions, instead of having
  138.         to explicitly deal with them in some After hook.
