Let's say you're troubleshooting a thread library problem that only
shows itself during an asio test.
Can you make changes to a thread file (e.g,
libs/thread/src/win32/thread.cpp), then re-run bjam in libs/asio/test
with the appropriate -a flag, and have your thread change be picked up?
I.e, boost thread library rebuilt, app rebuilt, app re-run.
