That's been my understanding all the time. I think we currently don't do
it because it might be non-obvious to the individual developers at the
time of check-in and due to underused tools.

We may not require that a single developer run all test suites in all
combinations we desire to be compatible, but with the ongoing effort to
improve the nightly/automated builds we should get into better shape there.

The one issue with delayed testing is that we would have to impose a
rule which requires "cool down" time after a checkin before making a
release. That's probably not a terrible thing anyway.
