I just looked at them briefly and they're not exactly duplicates. It
appears that test_shelve.py has more functional tests and
test_compute_api.py is more unit tests. But it would be nice to have
them all in the same place.

Personally I would prefer consolidating them into test_shelve.py because
_ComputeAPIUnitTestMixin is a giant class and it can be hard to discover
where something is tested. I like having the features tested in a
dedicated test file.
