But isn't that simply a question of writing the triggers correctly? I
mean, we don't actually re-build gnunet.git because of Gtk+ changes
(smokescreen), and I don't see why one couldn't teach the CI to not test
transport/ when only conversation/ changed.

And I agree that some of our tests simply take too long, but that's more
of a question of fixing the test logic (and allowing more of it to run
in parallel) for me.
