in thread Skip tests if/unless $ENV{FOO} is set using Test::More

I'm saying that the 96 CPU seconds that Math::BigInt spends running 22,000 tests (yes, literally 22 thousand tests) is not necessary for each upgrade. I'd be satisfied with about 100 key tests, and the rest could be set aside for masochists.

I mean c'mon, testing is cool and all that, but do you really need to test 22,000 points in the whole spectrum?

    Now that you've mentioned 22,000 tests, I tend to agree more with you. :)

      22,000? I mere bagatelle. Take a look at Regexp::Common - over 157,000 :-)
