While most of this sounds great, this one really doesn't.

The sanity tests should be able to run *much* faster than 15-20 minutes.
Can we prioritize getting an incremental rebuild bot as the sanity phase on
reasonably fast hardware? I think it's important to get through the sanity
phase in 1-5 minutes so that phase 2 doesn't get soooo many commits piled
up on it when someone checks in code with both a miscompile and a tiny
small build break (for example).
