+3. Assign groups to the test

We have several tests going up to 5s (and I have a patch pending to
remove two tests that took longer) - I think 1s is a bit on the short
end for still classifying a test as quick.
I'm happy to accept any number blessed by Kevin. I do think that 1
second is a safe maximum and no one should get in trouble for adding a
test that takes 1 second to the "quick" group.
+This group is run by "make check-block" and is often included as part of build
+tests in continuous integration systems.
It would still be nice to have 'make check' run 'make check-block'...
but that's independent of this patch.
Yes, there is a separate discussion about that on the list right now.
Hopefully it will be added back.
If we do, it'd be nice to have a `make check-block-alt` or something
else that checks the exact set of tests not covered by `make check-block`.
