      Description

      The existing puppetdb sync tests are very broad; if they pass, you're pretty confident that sync is working well, but if they fail, it's very hard to figure out what went wrong. As they have proven to also be very fragile, they've been a real pain to maintain.

      One way to help this is to more directly test the properties of the system that sync depends on. The most important one of these is command commutativity: you should get the same result when processing PDB commands regardless of the order they come in.
