It's a shame to have tests that stop the test suite for 5 seconds. It always
feels like an unsatsifactory hack to me. Would it be better to directly update
the mtime of those files in the tests instead?
I guess the downside is that an "age_file" rather than "pause" function would
be slightly more complex (to implement, and to explain).
