Not "anywhere", but declared in the same Jamfile. Which does not seem so
unreasonable, anyway.

The files are in different directory, but both tests are defined in the same
Jamfile. At the very least, you won't be able to selectively build one of

That will be great! Any chance this will be done in near future? It's a
