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

Well, Regexp::Common has over 150,000 tests, and I don't plan on lowering that number. If you don't want to run (all) tests, you can always ^C a make test and just do make install. Or skip the make test entirely. Or only run those test files you are interested in.

After all, what should the cut-off point be? 10% of the tests? That still is 15,000 tests, perhaps that's still too much for some people, while others find it not enough. Reduce it to 1%? That would be ridicilously low. Besides, I already spend over 90% of my time working in Regexp::Common in developing tests, I really ain't looking forward to deciding which tests are important, and which aren't.
