Subject: [boost] [testing] Proposal - regression tests results display upgrade

Currently test failures of a new feature are always marked with the
yellow color and a word 'fail'.
Would it make sense to use some more descriptive color/naming scheme?
In particular it would be nice to distinguish between the actual
failures and the situations when the compilation of a test took too much
time or an output file was too big.
Would it make sense to also distinguish between compilation, linking and
run failure? E.g. instead of a simple 'fail' use 'fail (c)', 'fail (l)'
and 'fail (r)'.
E.g. the color for actual failures could be orange and for "others"
could stay yellow.

Furthermore, currently it's impossible to see the results of compilation
if a test passed.
Would it make sense to change it?
This would allow us to view and fix warnings even if the test was passed.
The test passed with warnings could be marked e.g. with 'pass (w)' or
the color could be set to some between yellow and this light green.

If you directed me where it should be done I could try to change it.
I'm guessing it would require modifying some script generating the page
and some CSS?
