There's a lot of duplicated code here that's effectively just testing
the behavior of the common tunneling infrastructure.  Does it make
more sense to have some basic tests to ensure that a given type of
tunnel is recognized correctly plus tests for any special
functionality (such as the UDP port number)?  It seems like that would
give the vast majority of the benefit but would avoid the need to
update multiple tests when behavior changes and also speed up running
