For unit tests, the boolean property maven.test.skip can be set to
skip the executing of tests.  However, the flag will not prevent the
compiling of tests.

To automate the process, a preGoal to test:test could be added that
sets the property depending on file changes.

For integration tests, assuming we would use cactus, there doesn't
appear to be anything analogous to maven.test.skip for the cactus
