The headache is that testing anything more complex than loopback
implies you kick off a remote with -server and then pound on that
remote it from the client/framework.

Perhaps if we spun up parallel instances in the same port-ordered
manner, but those instances were truly distinct configs? (These need
distinct var/ directories/pid files etc, of course.)
