Here is how to use the "notes" mechanism:
In CVS, there is a file status/notes.html which provides HTML which is
copied to the end of compiler status reports. Add to notes.html if it
doesn't already contain the note you want to add.
Also in CVS, there is a file status/win32-notes-map.txt which maps either
individual tests or all tests for a library to note numbers. (A similar
file could be created for other platforms, but this hasn't been done yet.)
Modify this file (it has comment explaining the format) to add the tests
you want noted.
If you want these notes to appear on compiler status tables you are running
--notes %BOOST_ROOT%\status\notes.html --notes-map
to the compiler_status command line (assuming BOOST_ROOT is defined).
