I know it's probably too soon to think about this since we don't have
the parallelization behavior nailed down, but eventually we'll want to
think about Test::Class.
Test::Class tests often have a single driver script which will look
something like this:
use Test::Class::Load 't/tests';
That might be called something like 't/test_class_tests.t'.
That loads a bunch of test classes and runs them. We might want to
think about supplying patches to Test::Class which allows it to run
those classes in parallel. There are potentially a lot of funky bits
involved with that (startup and shutdown behaviors), but I think it's
important because those who use parallel tests are likely to be more
sophisticated in their testing strategies and are thus more likely to
be using Test::Class.
Of course, I could be dead wrong and I wouldn't hold up TH3 for this,
but I'd like it in the back of people's minds.
