 There are a few places where our unit tests could benefit hugely from
 sharing fixtures (ie the dummy data) across a series of tests. Take the
 `suggestions` group, for instance: these tests create a bunch of data
 during each `setUp()`, but the data is the same between tests, and is not
 modified during the tests. So it's safe to share it, and shave a minute or
 more off of the running time of our suite.

 Sharing fixtures should generally be done with caution, but when the tests
 are testing only *get* functionality, it should be safe.
