This has come up before and we don't want to use the same functional API 
samples infrastructure for generating API samples for the placement API. 
The functional API samples tests are confusing and a steep learning 
curve for new contributors (and even long time old tooth contributors 
still get confused by them).

Talk with Chris Dent about ideas here for API samples with placement. 
He's talked about building something into the gabbi library for this, 
but I don't know if that's being worked on or not.

Chris is also on vacation for a couple of weeks, just FYI.
