I believe we're in agreement.  No one should have to run the full DrDr
tests, nor compute the set of all libraries that could possibly be
impacted.  But some things get committed without even the most closely
related set of tests being run, and that ought to stop.  DrDr is not a
"does my fix work" engine.
