What I did didn't reduce ./bootstrap's resilience. It tries to
download everything, and only when it's gone through all files, exits
with an error if something failed to download from all its URLs. The
buildbots still failed despite ./bootstrap twice. Seems like a serious
networking problem. I am trying even more caching.
