+1 - some of the perf tests aren't going to complete in any sort of
reasonable time.  While we could claim it's a separate problem, we
should also not enable something that will make the travis runs so much
longer.

I do like the idea of running tests in the travis build, and I think it
would make sense to have just a single job for it (or maybe one for
clang and one for gcc?  maybe even that is overkill).

I would rather not do performance tests during the travis run, though.
It doesn't really make sense.  Travis isn't any kind of an 'optimized'
environment, so I don't know what 'performance' should mean.
