             Maybe, just maybe you can turn off some tests and keep
the others running instead of this blanket shutdown of all tests ,
non? I mean, I am sure we can arrive at an consensus of which tests
are important for the long run of the project and important even for
our short term goals. Say for e.g. (imho), typo checks are not exactly
something very critical, right?

              So maybe people come to common ground here and decide
which Krazy tests can be suspended temporarily and which can run.
