I don't hold any weight to rumblings regarding "not changing the tests if possible".  The tests need to change.  They were never written with the intent to run in parallel without any resource contention.  That's an important goal, now.  Please send over any patches you've got, everything will be useful!  Now that the dust has (sort of) settled on the network-oriented tests, I'm ready to start attacking the I/O ones.
