Sub-submodules are subdirectories in the module directory that have their
own directory structure inside:
and so on.
The regression script creates a separate page if the module directory
contains a file named 'sublibs' and the Jamfile for the sub-submodule is in
a test subdirectory of the subsubmodule subdirectory. (I think).
'boostdep' identifies a subsubmodule such as those in numeric by looking for
a sublibs file and an include/ directory.
In summary, the structure you need is:
Subsubmodules are a bit of a pain for the tools though, so I'm not sure if
it's a good idea to create more of them. Since they are all in the same
repository, they are not actually separate modules on a physical level, they
will just appear this way in the report. So it'd be a bit deceptive.
