That's not cacthable in unit or functional tests?

My experience is that it's *really* hard to tickle stuff like that from
Tempest in any meaningful way that's not catchable at lower levels.
Especially as we're going through SQLA for all this access in the first

Keeping jobs alive based on the theory that they might one day be useful
is something we just don't have the liberty to do any more. We've not
seen an idle node in zuul in 2 days... and we're only at j-1. j-3 will
be at least +50% of this load.
