I'll would declare the following tests as extensive: autorevert-tests.el,
dbus-tests.el, filenotify-tests.el, tramp-tests.el.

All of them use events and timers, and they take their time. And all of
them written by me :-(

Another idea: those tests could check environment variable
RUN_EXPENSIVE_TESTS. If existing, they would run all tests, otherwise
they would run just a short version of them.

Best regards, Michael.
