That only works if you have no crashs or looping documents. Especially
looping is a big problem in calc.

Then if we want to be fast using a debug/dbgutil build is the wrong
way but then we loose the advantages of gcc's safe iterators.

So I think 4000 known good documents can be easily tested in one day
or even faster with a "decent" machine but taking 4000 random
documents from bugzilla needs some manual interaction and therefore
will need more time.
As mentionend in the last mail, I think we could speed that up by
copying the test code and the makefile several times and run the test
in parallel. That way we could use more cores and would be more
reliable against crashs. ( we should of course not commit this stuff
