Steve Robbins was running them (and probably still is), but the results
were not being reported to the regression testing site. There was a
discussion on boost-testing about the issue: "[Boost-testing] test results
with mpi vanish", but I do not believe that the bug in the Web site was
ever resolved to allow the tests to appear.
