The test runner upgrades that you mentioned were a huge help. Now that GDAL
has a real maintenance budget we should be able to pay someone to tackle
the remaining issues in a methodical way. Run the tests in a random order,
say using https://pypi.org/project/pytest-random-order/, and fix the
setup/teardown so that tests are properly isolated.
