I think this is an excellent suggestion. What about having a single
christened platform be responsible for the generation of a 'Golden'
source tarball which everything else is then built from. This source
tarball could contain generated docs, so as far as that process is
concerned, you don't have to be as portable as if this was to be run on
every platform where boost is tested on.
