i wonder: has anyone ever tried to integrate the boost regression tests
with a cross-compiler and/or qemu? some years ago, i've tested some
altivec/neon code on x86_64 hardware by running my redirecting ctest to
call the binaries via qemu.
this would have two advantages:
* being able to test some architectures without having the hardware
* not having to compile natively on slow hardware
also it would be wonderful to be able to have testers for ios and
android. would be nice if apple or google could provide the
infrastructure for this ... one can dream ...
