Which timeouts are you talking about? On windows machines? Never
experienced a timeout
Could you give me some link?

It's difficult to test in complete isolation given that we use our own
dogfood (i.e. run with cmd) for cmd tests.
Also you would have to run all the tests anyway, since a small change
to a builtin can lead to regressions in other parts.
The association .cmd/.exp would have to be handled specially as well.
