Fellow boosters.,

I hope to be soon uploading a draft of a much evolved version of the serialization library
reviewed last november. I have been working with BJAM to automate builind
of library and tests, and running the tests. So far so good.

The system build around BJAM seems to work very well and I am very pleased
with it - BUT. The logic is seems to be spread around different files and
directories and is hard to track down. and the jam language takes some
getting used to.

I currently have about 30 tests. I would like to run each of the tests under
all the following combinations:

30 tests
5 3 or 4 compilers I have on my machine
2 modes (release and debug)
5 different compile time defines - for applying each test to each archive

so that's around 1500 test combinations.

So I need help in enhancing my jamfile to do this automatically. If any jam
expert wants to help me with this I would be please do here from him
on private email.
