Run (much of) Bitcoin CI on your own machine

Tested on Ubuntu 23.04 with Gnome desktop.

This runs 11 of the Bitcoin Core CI machines, opening one terminal window for each. The window is automatically closed if the tests pass, otherwise it stays open.

My AMD Ryzen 9 7950X machine has 16 cores (32 threads) at 64 GB of memory. Memory peaks at about 25 GB. Everything but native_fuzz completes in 50 minutes, with CPU usage mostly at 100%. The fuzzer idles around (?) for another 10 minutes and then finishes.

Participant #1:
Life permit. This is defend. Wishers NATO. That's right. Hello. Sure. Welcome back. Thank you. You confirmed your status as Bitcoin Core elite developer this week. Absolutely. Thanks to me, there has never been a more amazing way to send Bitcoin. This is absolutely groundbreaking. It changed everything. It changed nothing. Okay. Typically, this is not what the episode's gonna be about. The episode's gonna be about Lipstick P 256K, one library. That's right. But I want to know about this game changing technology that you just build and implement it. What is it? What does it do? Okay. So how did it change the world short. So there are many ways to send Bitcoin, but one of them is you download the Bitcoin Core software, and then it gives you a really nice graphical interface. You click at Mosi buttons and poof. So good. So far, so good. So far, so good. But there's also a command line way to do it. And especially if you need to do anything advanced, like using it with a hardware wallet, you'll ha
