Just to note - not only it is very stable these days, it also became
significantly faster; the "@6-fast" tinderbox now builds in 2.5 hours
(it took nearly 4 previously), thanks to various improvements, like more
and more gbuild use, nodeps, custom shapes build time reduction, etc.

Thank you everyone who contributed to this - via fixing the Windows
tinderboxes breakages quickly, and the various improvements everywhere!
