Right, it's much more complete than any other build bot. But taking nearly a
day to run one cycle is too long. I'd like to think even our most complete
tests should be able to be done in 3 hours max, preferably 1-2 hours.

My suggestion for quick sanity checks was with the idea that those can always
be completed in 15-30 minutes. The point of this is at least partially to
hedge our bets about being able to achieve the above. If we have fast but
simple tests that finish in less than an hour, then I don't think it would be a
huge deal if the complete tests took 6 hours.

Thanks.
