I think I just need to own that so long as my job is writing python web apps, I will never get to use a fast test suite. It will always take 5+ minutes to spin up the database, and minutes to run each module :(

@secstate I'm so conflicted.

I want to boost this in case you're wrong and someone can help.

But you probably aren't and so any replies would just be tiring.

And what if you are?! Then you'd've been doing it wrong! :(

@secstate or you could just mock the heck out of everything, and only have a few of the slower integration tests you'd run less often
