No. I do need Jamfile to build prg_exec_monitor and test_exec_monitor was never
properly cleaned up from other QLib libs. I would do it myself (it is very
strait-forward exercise to replace its usage with unit test framework), but I
never seem to have time to do this. That said, unit test framework does not
require either one of them and I do not agree with claims stating otherwise. b2
and with-test argument is out of my control and frankly I do not know where and
why one uses it.

test_execution_monitor IS officially deprecated. prg_exec_monitor is not, but it
have nothing to do with testing.
