Ah, but when people have raised this exact issue before (that tcbuild and
'make tinderbox' build different things), you have blown them off repeatedl=

Agreed on that front.

No, it is very developer friendly as it Just Works(tm) as a single command

albeit doing quite a bit of duplicate work for platforms like arm in the
process).
