Thomas, All,

I don't understand why you want to test them in the order they are
listed... I understand that you want them to be _selected_ in the order
they appear, yes. But tested? See below...

Except for a small nit [0]:

[0] BTW, no need for a trailing '\' here...

We could always keep the previous trick to sort the selected toolchains;

    |if [ ${random} -gt 0 ]; then \
        sort -R |head -n ${random} 
     elif [ ${number} -gt 0 ]; then
        head -n ${number}
     else
        cat
     fi |sort

This way, the toolchains are selected in the order they appear in the
file, they are always tested in alphabetical order, like it was before
that patch.

But I won't let this prevent the merge, so my Reviewed-by stands.

Yann E. MORIN.
