A quick update on this.  After discussing the increased resource
requirements needed to test both Puppet installation types on CentOS 7
and Trusty with Emilien, we decided to just move forward with simply
keeping a single beaker test per platform but upgrading those tests to
Puppet 4.

Right now I am fighting the annoying combination of non-standard OS
paths (/opt/puppetlabs/puppet/bin) and beaker not understanding how to
deal with nodepool instances gracefully.  Because of both issues, to
make this work I'll need to get a couple patches into beaker.
