I don't believe there are any documents as far as this goes. I like
what I have in Boost.Threads, which I *think* is the same as in

      Jamfile - Builds the library
      Jamfile - Builds/runs the regression test
      Jamfile - Builds all example programs

It might be beneficial to modify the example directory to be more
like this:

      Jamfile - Builds all example programs
          Jamfile - Builds only example1
          Jamfile - Builds only example2

The same could be done for the test directory if a library has
multiple test programs.
