I bet it's doable. I did a bunch of work on getting Jam to generate html for
test result output already, but it's not integrated into the system yet.

I'm not happy with any direction that requires specifying tests in two
different languages. Now boost developers either need to install Dart or we
have duplicated test specifications. I think either one is unacceptable.
