Bug#804406: autopkgtest: add a restriction or a feature to permit tests of different expected duration

Package: autopkgtest
Version: 3.17.2~bpo8+1
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer Team:

	It appears that one of my current tests (make-longcheck for
	the gmp-ecm pacakge, not to mention it) constantly caught a TERM
	signal after a fix duration of abour 2h50. For some tests, this
	duration limit is certainly very long; but for some other tests
	the time scale can far longuer. It would be nice to have a mean
	to specify qualitatively the expected time scale of the involved
	test (e.g., short, long, very_long, extremely_long, etc).
