What's going to be tested is fluid. The ultimate goal is to allow
developers to request specific combinations of tests with each commit by
modifying a .json file in their project's root directory. In the
meantime, I expect to test every commit on any branch.

The biggest question is against which versions of Boost dependencies the
commit will be tested. The obvious choices are 1. the version that was
part of the last boost release, and 2. the last version of the
dependency to be individually released (i.e. that dependency's "master"

Feedback/opinions on that choice are most welcome.
