That makes sense, although I personally would think the
current approach via the upload tool is an unnecessary
overhead in itself - why not work with the input files in
the test-data folder directly without copying them?

This could also solve the problem of only being able to
write tests with input files which support uploading -
right now for example I can't write tests using BLAST
databases (composite datatypes) as inputs.

Do you think it would save much time if that was
disabled? Or is the metadata not that slow and just
produces lots of logging output drawing attention
to itself?
