While this is true up to a point, developers would still need to rely on 
Buildbot runs because if you're on Linux you can't test IOCP or kqueue 
locally even if ReactorMixin style tests had full coverage. So requiring 
one extra "trial -r" in a buildslave won't make a difference to 
developers; they will not be able to rely on local runs for full test 
coverage no matter what.
