There are >65 tests in that directory. Multiply that by 7 or 8 compilers,
and it would be a huge additional testing load.

Boost.Python and Spirit libraries also have extensive test suites that are
not part of the main regression tests.

We need to figure out how to collapse some of the existing tests into
fewer files before we go adding a lot of new test files. Or maybe
decompose the tests into sub-groups, and figure out a way to combine the
results into a master table.

Please don't add a lot of tests until we succeed in shrinking what is
already there down to something more manageable.
