I'm re-posting this (from 11/22). I'd really like to reconcile command-line vs run.py...

This works and gives me results like this...
unit_tests : FAILED
module_actions : PASSED
startup_v1 : PASSED
I see, too, that '--verbose' enables detailed output, from
BoostBuild.Tester's docstring (and from trying it). But it says "Note
that it does not also enable more verbose build system output like the
--verbose command line option does." What does that mean? If I run
"python test_all.py --verbose verbose" it doesn't seem to like that
(attempts to run verbose.init).
Also, I'm seeing a different pass/fail pattern between when I run it
like this and when it runs from run.py. I'm running it with mingw-4.4.3
on the same trunk revision that the "MinGW-32 jc-bell.com" regression
Picking "absolute_sources", for example, I see
absolute_sources : PASSED
But the regression shows it failed.
How do I reconcile these?
