 > Who cares if our CI builds are slow? Obviously we don't want them to
 take days, but the difference between 20 minutes and 10 or 5 minutes is
 not significant enough that it should influence decisions about the
 software requirements.

 You are correct when you hint that robots do not care that their time is
 wasted checking for unlikely conditions, and that it's better we task them
 to perform that job than waste our precious and expensive time. Whether or
 not to let a specific tool influence how a job is performed is up to
 engineers (see: us) to decide.

 We allow IDE's to dictate filenames (#6051) so why not identify and cut
 out unrealistic integration tests?

 According to [https://make.wordpress.org/meta/2015/03/01/major-update-to-
 our-version-stats-for-php-mysql-and-wordpress/ updated WordPress stats] we
 could the gap between 3.7 and 3.9 is just over 6% of installations. In a
 few months it will be 5%, which historically has been !WordPress's guide
 for PHP versions, and also our loose guide for !WordPress versions.
