I think targets that want the additional stability should provide
*additional* pre-commit bots. Not all commits will be pull requests,
and skipping fast bots on non-pull requests wouldn't be wise.

They also have a different requirement and will take on more patches
than the post-commit bots and potentially a lot more *broken* patches.
We should not have them in the same infrastructure or at least not
with the same configuration, scale, etc. as the post commit ones.
