i tend to think the other way around -- the way to prove it is to push
it into the CI pipelines on the development branch, rather than trying
to prove it on individual developer systems.

You could do that, but i'm not sure how much you'd gain from it -- its
current implementation is all mixed up with the parallelized tests,
anyway. If you wanted to propose a concrete re-optimization like this,
i'd be happy to review it, test it and report back on the speedup
thanks for thinking this through, Tomi!
