v2.000004 Tests fail with HARNESS_OPTIONS=j3 #3

tests are fine normally, but when you invoke parallel harness, they hemorrhage.

It doesn't appear the problem is caused by intra-run dependency, just the tests both create and delete the same paths, and them running simultanously causes a small amount of confusion, because one test deletes the others files from under it.

to replicate, this is all thats needed

prove -lvr t/deprecated.t & prove -lvr t/everything.t

Run it repeatedly, and get different results each time.

@doherty Allow tests to run in parallel
In an effort to clean up, the tests would delete each others'
work directories, causing spurious failures. In reality,
there's no need to clean up at all, so simply skip that.

Thanks to kentnl for the bug report.

Fixes gh-3
