Quoting John:

  Each test should be marked, and the test runner should take these into account
  and provide options for picking which grade of test (or lower) to be run. This
  way I can tell Nix to build and run #2 tests. 'make check' should run #2,
  'make fullcheck' should run #3, and there should be individual check targets
  for the tests in #4.

#1 are sanity (or smoke) tests, something which shall run <30 seconds,
and maybe recommended to run prior any commit (or push) to emacs repo.

Best regards, Michael.
