but you can't deterministically say how much is enough. So we should at least 
start with documenting this issue. Care to submit a patch for

but that's on your system. On other machine it can be something different.

This is quite possible in the later releases, but this is unrelated to 
Apache::Test since it will do the same thing for mp1 and mp2 (with your 
patch). just add a new variable so it'll be encapsulated rather than hardcoded.

I was talking about the mp1 test suite, but I have heard of no complaints so 
far. So let's just leave it...
