Because the only person willing to work on them is you, and you are a
single point of failure; + busy.

Well if you run the expensive tests on our large datasets every time
someone commits you may soon destroy the scm server too without some
modifications, either to the tests (a daemon that caches tree state?)
or to our commit processes (pushing less often means tests run less
often means server doesn't die) or some combination of these things.

If the entire git tree is in a memory-backed FS; I'm not sure how fast
the checks are (if we eschew the memory-based daemon thing).
