So, another thing to look out for, for Stefano: will the driver remain
compatible to the current parallel-tests one, and if not, is it possible
to have a compatible one (without too much maintenance effort
duplication)?  No need to go the effort right away.

I hope that we do not have to maintain four or more such drivers.  Two
is already more than nice for maintenance (and has caused sync issues
already).  But maybe we can keep issues so small that we can deal with
them in a NEWS entry after all.
