We actually now do precisely this. Since a few weeks ago we have a
nightly `validate --slow` (which enables -DDEBUG in the stage 2
compiler) job that runs on the CircleCI infrastructure.
Thanks to Alp's work it even appears to pass. However, in light of
#14904 I wonder if it we are failing to catch an exit code since it
sounds like it should have been failing.
