Well, the first 7 toolchains are kind of listed in the order of
importance, so it makes more sense to *test* the most important
toolchain first, so if it fails, you can abort there, investigate, and
then restart the test.

But that's not a strong opinion, so if you disagree with this, I don't
care that much if the toolchains are tested in alphabetic ordering.

Best regards,

Thomas
