I would ignore this in each case. I compile & test for the platform I work on.

The rest would be for the daily testsuite run. That is why it exists.
Or do you intend to say you manually run the tests for all platforms after every line
you change ? I think we would not see many improvements if you did.

I am aware of the fact that I run only 1 platform. 
It is also the reason I offered to help integrating it in the testsuite, so
the nightly testsuite can pick it up for all platforms.

But I will not change my way of working.

1 minute and more or 6 seconds is a world of difference, and a showstopper
for me: I tried your way, it didn't work for me.

I have demonstrated it amply I think, so if you don't accept that, OK, a

The offer to help integrating the local tests somehow in the testsuite remains.
