Release testing and the relationship between 'bzr selftest' and plugins

Regarding running `bzr selftest` as part of the installer building process,
I started `time ./bzr selftest --parallel=fork --no-plugins` this morning
on the Macbook I use to build the OS X installers so I can see how long it
would take. Building the installer itself already takes about 30 minutes
for a completely clean build, although I can usually do an incremental
build for minor plugin version changes. The primary culprit is compiling

My suspicion is that it's going to take a very long time. The Macbook is
kinda dinky in comparison to my Windows desktop machine and the desktop
took a very long time to run the full suite.
