Thanks for trying to fix this long standing problem.

While this works in your case, this doesn't scale to the community,
as not all contributors have access to such hardware and bandwidth /

While your first patch is useful in showing where the artifacts are
stored doesn't matter - as long as we use cryptographic hashes - I
think it is a step in the wrong direction, so I am not keen on
accepting it.

My personal view is that any contributor should have the same
possibilities to add tests to the project. Now I am also open to
discuss with the others :) I might be proven wrong, and it could
be better to rely on good willing contributors rather than having
nothing useful at all.
