no, it completes in ~3min or so on my pentium dual ;) notebook, thats ok
speed wise.
What ive meant is that this forces me to always run the reg tests on it,
i cant just develop on my duron and run the regtests on it because that
takes so abysmal long.

I think this would be really usefull for many people, no matter how fast
the reg tests are, if they are faster development could be done quicker.
