None of our tests take more than an hour or so, but I still
don't want to run them after every edit!

It sounds like you either have an enormous number of tests, of
they go beyond unit tests. I'd expect to be able to run
several thousand unit tests per minute.

Each unit test checks only a single set of input. Most
functions have billions of possible input, if not more. How
exhaustive do you test? (The answer, of course, depends. But
given the non-linearity of computer logic, you often need quite
a few.)
