I test everything I commit to the trunk.  I know others who do as
well, including people who do their main work on the trunk (I don't,
my software lives on Planet).  I am well aware of the costs.  I am
also aware of the costs of not testing, every time I check out a build
that doesn't work and have to either sort it out or wait for someone
else to.
