I wasn't specifically asking for it as a prerequisite for "officially"
declaring V2 our production build system. I was just pointing out
that, at the very least, for the latter to happen the regression
testing has to be switched over to V2. At the moment I have no idea
what's involved in it. My major concern is this: does V2 guarantee
exactly the same format of the output ("bjam log") as V1?

The V2 toolsets infrastructure is different, and it matters for the
reports. Other than that, if --v2 play well with process_jam_log, I
agree with the rest of your post below.
