OK, especially with the earlier observation made by Peff in the log

    ... we can see that other files we write to test-results (like
    *.exit and *.out) do _not_ have the PID included. So the
    presence of the PID does not meaningfully allow one to store the
    results from multiple runs anyway.

even if we wanted to, keeping the current code with suffix is not
sufficient, so I suspect it won't be just "a commit" away, but we
should be able to lose it for now.  Hopefully that would help making
Dscho's "what are the failed tests?" logic simpler.
