I have just successfully bootstrapped tesla while the library units on
which it depends were also tesla-compiled.  See below for the details.

I'll probably spend the rest of this day to get tesla up to par with
respect to the usual non-source files in a software package.  Expect
version 0.1 of tesla on by tonight.  I would appreciate
it if people were to try it out and report any bugs.  --Tiggr

Bootstrap details (`->' means builds):

  1	tomc -> tesla -> tom/C/gps/mu library units
  2	using those units: tesla -> self -> self2 -> self3
  	no diffs between step-2 self2 and self3 C files.
  3	self3 -> tom/C/gps/mu library units
  4	using those new units: tesla -> self -> self2 -> self3
	no diffs between step-4 self2 and self3 C files
	no diffs between step-4 and step-2 self[23] files
