I've coded some tests that result too heavy (slow) for unit testing. But I
think they still provide value in specific cases.

So I've thought of renaming the file as *heavy_test_*.py*. This will make
default calls skip them but they can still be run explicitly whenever the
developer/tester wants to extend the coverage or the reliability of the

I'd like to know what other developers/testers think of this approach.

If we do this for other modules and components we might create a subfolder
'heavy_tests' or similar to collect separate them from regular *tests_*.py*
