Since this seems to me like a problem for many (if not all), I'd like to
have a (short) discussion on this first.

Possible other solutions:
1) create a "test" repo, which holds all tests, and make sure we have
   structure that is able to track the proper dependencies for each
2) move all tests to one of the repos where they could be executed (like
   this commit suggests).  Problem is for tests that like to access more
   languages, or backends.  Should they be in multiple places, or is
   some half-.... dependency tracking necessary anyway?  Separates
   source from tests as well as 1) but in a more fragmented way.
3) don't test.
4) only run testing after all components have been compiled.
5) ???
