And for the next feature.. another one-liner, and another.

Some of it. Parts of it have better equivalents in BuildBot. And other
parts are the same logic I, and others, use in our test scripts (not

Yes. Incrementally.

I _am_ fixing an existing tool,,,, run_tests.bat. And yes, I'm also fixing other tools, like
BBv1, just not as visibly.

And it has nothing to do with excitement. This is something I have a
personal need to do, i.e. I need for my business. I can't use for my needs. So I chose to do some extra work, above *my*
requirements so that it could be used by Boost. In the mean time I have
a 3 hour interruption, to track down a problem on your machine.

Honestly Aleksey, you ask me to explain how BuildBot can be better. And
when I do, you belittle my answers, and the work done by the creators of
BuildBot. I'm not sure how to take it, but it's getting a bit
frustrating :-\
