Hi Aleksey,

I'd appreciate this a lot if we could do this sometime in the future.
Would it also be possible to have Spirit 1.6.x take part in the daily
regressions? It would be nice if I could check in Spirit 1.6.x in a
separate directory. This will ensure that the version will remain
compatible with current and future boost versions. I'm afraid Spirit
1.6.x will still be with us for a long time.

Tell me if this is like asking for the moon :-P
