I could break the test up, but I don't think it would save space
overall. There's really nothing I can do. xpressive works by generating
code -- in this case, lots of it. The functionality needs to be tested,
I have no control over the size of msvc's .obj files. Do I? I'm guessing
most of the space is debug information. Is there a way to turn that off?
