That is really wonderful! The regression.cpp program must be close to
winning the prize for lowest average lines-of-code per feature:-)

The only other concern I have is the built-in HTML comments lines for
certain compilers. If those comments came from the compiler.cfg file, then
they could be independent of the .cpp file. I also wouldn't mind a
similar feature for copying HTML for comments from the regression.cfg file
as I'm expecting to expand usage to library specific regression tests which
might require their own HTML text.

But please don't bother if it would take a lot of time or mess up an
otherwise readable program. They aren't all that important.
