How long did you wait? I ask because the tests take *ridiculously* long for me. I would give it several hours because not all of the tests are equal.

However, I completely understand there's no magic way for you to know this, so at the very least an ewarn is a good idea, or to exclude particularly long tests.

Thanks! I'll restrict tests on Theano because it's on the way out. We're replacing it with theano-pymc.

    dev-python/theano: restrict slow tests
    We're replacing dev-python/theano with
    dev-python/theano-pymc so let's just restrict
    tests here given how slow they are (and they may hang).
    Tests run fine on theano-pymc and we'll be removing
    this package soon.
