Good. I hope to make some progress with suggested todo items soon. And here's
another question: with current unit-test rule the unit test binary is removed
if it fails, which makes debugging that binary inconvenient. And jam has no
explicit way to prevent removing the target. Could an action modifier be
added to handle this, e.g "noremove" or "precious"? It appears to be
reasonable addition which won't break anything.
