I _think_ what you're proposing is interesting, but the means of
getting there may be completely inappropriate for Boost.Build, if I
understand it at all. Why don't you try to say what you're trying to
accomplish without trying to design the Boost.Build feature? Are you
trying to get cvs checkout actions into the build system? If so, why?
What's wrong with doing

       cvs update -rwhatever_tag
before kicking off the test?
