I'd be willing to try, but I think we might get more bang-for-the-buck
if I set things up so that failed tests don't run until they're
outdated. That part can be done entirely within Boost.Build rather
than trying to figure out how to combine some XML markup with
it... unless something in the Jamfile that causes the test to be
skipped for certain toolsets is enough for you.
