Maybe it's better, but with git bisect skip I'd still be in testing
session - I tried that. I also tried skipping more (N - for N={1..4})
revisions with git reset --hard HEAD~N, but it was also pointless

Judging from compilation errors, I made an assumption that it was
always the same error causing compilation failure for me. Now I have
narrowed down the list of possible commits to 46 and can start with
narrower boundaries - manageable even with git bisect skip (to
proove/contradict that all the commits in between are failing to

And I'll try that on next possible occasion - possibly even today.
