One thing to note is if we want to speed up things like the coverage run on Travis we may want to make this optionally more deterministic rather than fully random for the 10 selected files, otherwise coverage shifts and we can't rely on any coverage metrics per-PR to know if code is increasing or decreasing coverage. Maybe having a ``-u deterministic`` resource to take out the randomness for coverage runs but leave the randomness for buildbots? This might also require tweaking our Travis tests as they currently use the buildbot make rule (I think).

P.S. I bet there are also some multiprocessing tests that go a bit overboard that we could consider scaling back, e.g. the coverage run skips a bunch of tests because they seem to process the entire stdlib.
