When I set up my sparc64 smoker with Test::Smoke I couldn't figure out
how to make it do smoke-me branches.  I did ask in #perl-qa for
direction but still wasn't able to figure out how to make it do that.

If someone tells me how, I can make my smoker do it.

My smoker has lots of fairly slow processors, so if it was possible, I
would love to be able to do a smoke where I do all the different builds
there in parallel, but (I can't recall the details at the moment) there
was some collision with a file in /tmp or someplace that meant parallel
perl tests didn't work.
