Wouldn't it be better to wait for Boost.Build V2? I thought it was fairly

It would be much easier to maintain the XML and status table generation
code if lot of test information was reported in one file, rather than being
spread over so many files. I'm hoping V2 will be able to handle that.

Yes, and it is a real kludge. But I couldn't see any other way to get the
test type (comple, run, run-fail, etc). I hope V2 will be able to put that
information in the residue, or write it to the log.

Yes, that would be nice. But I'd rather not ask for incremental changes to
V1, unless something is totally broken.
