As part of decentralization, should we not change status/Jamfile.v2 to
enumerate libs/*/test and libs/*/*/test by itself? There are a few special
cases; those can be left in as special cases or fixed.
Ideally, adding a library should not involve changes to any central
repositories of information. You put it in libs/mylib and everything should
just pick it up, as long as it follows the directory structure guidelines
and has the necessary metadata.
