np, I kind of forgot about it too to be fair :)

Yeah, I agree there

Right. So I kind of disagree here. To me, the define should match the
definition we have for a slow test. We chose to report it only if it
exceeds it by a margin, but that's a separate thing from the actual
threshold.

I guess I could add a new version to make that distinction clearer.
Would that work for you?
