Overnight, gate failures for the gabbi tests in the telemetry
projects exposed that I'd done a rather poor job of highlighting
the issues with and the proper ways to manage running gabbi tests
with a concurrent runner.

Gabbi has always worked concurrently as long as the test runner was
made aware of how to group the test suites. The 1.22.0 release of
gabbi had some refactoring that change a module name that made
things blow up. If you are using gabbi in tests you might want to
look at these fixes:


to see if it is relevant[1].

The 1.23.0 release of gabbi (RSN) will have more visible docs on this
issue and warn when gabbit filenames make grouping more difficult.

[1] I used codesearch.o.o to find the projects that appear to be
using gabbi, but I may have missed some.
