In simple cases you'd do it manually. Knowing the donor library helps a lot.
For MPL.Core I wrote scripts, which are somewhat coupled with MPL, but not too
much. Peter's boostdep tool will probably help but I haven't looked into it
closely yet.

The regression test pages correspond to libraries and sub-libraries. If you
extract tests to a separate submodule, they will be shown on a separate page.
