Default Tramp timeout is 60 seconds. We could shorten it for the tests
if desired.

OTOH, often I use fencepost.gnu.org as remote counterpart for the tests,
which is useful *because* I have a slow connection to that host. It's
useful to see how Tramp behaves on slow lines.

Well, that's the default. But Tramp can run without ssh at all.

Tramp shouldn't ask you; it's the task of `tramp--test-enabled' to check
silently, whether the tests must be skipped.

What does it ask you? A password? It shouldn't. A passphrase? This we
might want to suppress. Something else?

Best regards, Michael.
