Another point is that passing on one platform doesn't ensure passing on
another. Here we really rely on the willingness of the pghackers

when they do. Again, tests that take a couple minutes to run are ideal;
if they took a week then the uptake would drop to zero, and we'd not be

Have you considered something similar to the Mozilla tinderbox approach where you have a daemon checkout the cvs, compile, run regression tests, and report a status or be able to report a status?
