After loading the new Early Access build [0] and
updating the syntax [1], the 1.000.000 virtual tests
... erm ... virtual threads are running like a charm.

Looks like the overhead also decreased, when
looking at the numbers produced on GitHub
Actions (that is Microsoft Azure's containers).
See the updated timings table at [2].
