I think this is the problem with this approach: any non-trivial library
will quickly run out of time on the CI servers, some of which are rather
slow. Certainly Math and Multiprecision libraries had to be split into
multiple jobs to get through CI testing. I'm sure there are many others
with similar issues.

Best, John.
