Don't apologise, as you will have noticed the type_traits tests are in a
state of flux right now, they will settle down soon (honestly), and yes that
build everything test will be removed from status/Jamfile, it will stay in
libs/type_traits/test/Jamfile though as it is sometimes useful to build and
check everything at once with the more conforming compilers.
