If nothing else, you could wrap it in a tiny script that parses the output
of that command, and exits with an exit status of zero if and only if the
string matches what you expect, and then check that with ReturnsZero. In
fact, something as simple as

  #!/bin/bash
  [ $($1) = $2 ]

should do the trick...
