I assumed there was a reason for the parallel naming.

We could make it explicit by adding a 1 line comment to the top of each 
module.  That would be a good place to mention any complications.  We could 
also rename any modules that don't fit the pattern.

The current test setup bails after a test fails and doesn't run the rest of 
the tests in that routine.  Is there a clean way to make it skip some/all the 
rest of the test routines in that module?  I suppose I could a global variable 
and test it at the beginning of each routing.  Context for that query is using 
a test for authreadkeys to leave behind some keys in memory that following 
routines would like to use.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
