In the new version that I've sent I've already added a helper to
TestSupport, it's just two lines of code so unless you feel really
annoyed by it I would probably leave it there.

Does it make sense to have the hostname or the ident?

After all ts-set-host-properties-from-runvars is only going to save
properties for the host passed as 'host' ident, and I don't see much
reason for allowing it to support two different idents like src_host
or dst_host, or in general for having a test script that sets host
properties for multiple hosts.
