The command should be testable as soon as they are fully implemented,
I'm thinking about a sequence like this:
- Infrastructure for command A (and possibly B, C, etc. if they are
- Command A + tests
- Infrastructure for command B
- Command B + tests

Well, I can't do this either, both because it would take time to get up
to speed on the patches and because I have a million other things going
on at the moment. So unfortunately, this is going to sit until someone
can take it up.
Unless Junio accepts your patches, of course. :)

Well, I guess I'm not strongly opposed, I was just asking the question.

So you agree it should be factored?

No, I'm very strongly against putting this back in. The new tests will
have to be updated to the upstream test infrastructure.
