I appreciate a fast test suite -- I often do a "make check" before
pushing just to see that nothing was inadvertently broken by a
seemingly-innocuous change.

So I think Stefan K's changes here are correct, and that we should have
small, fast unit tests only in the default "make check", and have the
longer-running integration tests on a different level.  (Hydra should
run all these, though, and if it doesn't, that should be changed.)
