[SAMBA4] Have I got a task for you! (help fix quicktest)

Samba4's 'make quicktest' is a great way to check that simple changes
don't totally bust the tree.  However, it does not cover many quick

I wondered if you might be able to run:

../selftest/selftest.pl --prefix=st --builddir=. --srcdir=.
--exclude=selftest/skip --testlist="selftest/tests.sh|" --socket-wrapper

Then grep for the subunit output, to find the timestamps.  using that
(see the subunit project for scripts and format details), produce a
spreadsheet with all the tests, and how long they take. 

Look at the list of tests we have in selftest/quick, and then propose
anew list of tests containing more (or at least a better variety of)
tests that can be executed in the same or a similar amount of time. 

Hopefully this will allow us to get more code tested quickly, rather
than relying on the (too long) full make test 

What do you think?
