Would making the tests safe to run in parallel be a good proposal idea? Or
is it too ambitious for a summer project.
Running these tests in one process is painstaking on my FX-8350

Imo probably not a GSOC project, but I'm open to disagreement.

The full tests take about 20 minutes, but valgrind takes 10 hours (on my
machine). I wouldn't recommend that to check on a single bug. Using the
wrapper and suppression files should get you a setup close to mine for
testing, however.
