Tesla has just built itself, while having been built by itself,
and there are no diffs between the outputs! :)

A short introduction to the meta levels in bootstrapping a compiler:

	tomc builds tesla
	tesla builds self
	self builds self2
	self2 builds self3

The output of self and self2, i.e. the C code files that constitute self2
and self3, are identical, meaning that tesla can build itself.

Starting tonight, snapshots of tesla will be available at the usual place.
