Well, you are right to a certain extent, but it 1) only affects those
actually running regression tests, and 2) is optional - you don't have to
run it.

Here is my first try. Excuse the absolute paths and lack of pipes, as this
was just a hack to see what the output would look like:

   copy \boost\site\status\cs-win32.html cs-win32-diff.html
   diff cs-win32-diff.html cs-win32.html >cs-win32.diff
   sed --f=cs-win32.sed cs-win32.diff >cs-win32.ptch
   patch cs-win32-diff.html <cs-win32.ptch

The sed file contained:

   s$> <td>Pass</td>$> <td><font size="6"><b><i>Pass</i></b></font></td>$
   s$> <td><font color="#FF0000">Fail</font></td>$> <td><font size="6"

The output c:\boost\regr\cs-win32-diff.html file is attached.
