I don't know how feasable this would be, but you might also want to consider
library dependancies so that if you modify the iterator adaptors library you
can pull a list of tests that need to be re-run because the associated
libraries use iterator adaptors. This would reduce the number of tests that
need to be performed on each cycle, but you'd need some way of archiving the
results and only updating the ones that are re-run.
When testing a new platform/compiler/configuration, you can tell the test
suite to run all the tests for that setup, but for the others (where it has
already been run) it will operate as above, unless an explicit request for
the full set of tests is provided (allowing for, say, the full set to be
performed weekly while the dependant tests are performed daily/every 12
I like the idea of specifying the test level (basic, torture, concept).
