Some have mentioned multiple times that the regression-test batch should not
take too long to compile. I don't share this opinion. The more tests, the
better and as long as the tests can be compiled in less then one night I
don't see a problem. For the status pages we (should) just have a cronjob
that starts in the evening.
As for reporting it's more difficult. Although Beman probably saw this one
coming and thus provided functionality to make a status page that only
reports the failed tests (as reported seperatly for windows 2K and vacpp)
