I still believe it would be better for boost if such logic would be
out-sourced into externally developed and maintained code.
I once offered to help to use QMTest for all the testing harness,
including data collection and reporting. But my point here is not to
promote my own tools, but rather to encourage boost developers to focus
on what (IMO) matters: the boost libraries, not the harnesses that are
used to develop and build them.
