I've been mostly worried about using a hard-coded name 'Modules' in three
different files: Test/Makefile.in, ztst.zsh and P01privileged.ztst.

Yes, unless someone modifies ztst.zsh (lines 38 and 60).

If we need to take account of a possibility that the 'Test' directory itself is
not world readable/searchable, then, yes, we need to use the UID of its owner.
