I'd *so* much like to see that. (Not only for running the test, which
would become significantly easier.) The actual release process would
become so much easier!
The sheer number of libraries that form Boost more and more requires a
more disciplined way of using CVS. Things like somebody checking in a
change that breaks other libraries without supplying the documentation
about how to deal with the breaking change should never happen. Of
course, progress needs to be saved even when the work isn't complete
yet. That's what you can use branches for.
