Well, let me plan on leaving the current slave at 6.x (but working on
getting it to 6.4).  I could probably see about providing an
additional 7.x slave - the only real issue is that at the moment
they'd both be VMs on the same physical host, which is already shared
with my Windows slave.

I think a recent posting by Martin mentioned being able to interlock
one or more slaves so they didn't execute in parallel, so that could
help clean up the contention, though I must admit to not knowing for
sure if serial execution would yield a faster overall result among all
the slaves, though it feels likely.
