But for quickly testing a long-running system, it is very useful. It should have caught the ldns bug, for example (if we had thought to test for it...).

I have a load of tests which check that the original enforcer ran as specified over long periods, using exactly this feature. It means that you can run a "long-running" test in a few seconds on a continuous integration test machine.
