It does... Hm. 

Looking more closely at the current run-webkit-tests I realize that it attempts
to keep the current DRT open by default for 1000 tests. So perhaps the best way
of doing it is to keep N instances of DRT open for 1000 tests. That will leave
one perl process coordinating everything (which is fine) but there's some logic
needed to figure out which pipe was broken (in case of one of the DRTs
crashing) and we need some select logic to wait for the output to be available.
