I think adding the extra flexibility is probably better.  It might
avoid quite a bit of needless installing of things.  It would also
remove one more barrier sharing of test dom0s.

NB you'll probably want to replace the timeout with a fixed value.
The current timeout is a guess based on the number of packages which
wouldn't be right if "this" run could be queued up behind a much
larger run holding the lock.

How unhelpful.  Fair enough.
