In my source tree there was a folder icon named regression and I just
clicked it and the folder appeared in the right place in my modular-boost
tree. Which I suppose is OK - except that there's another corner of git
that I have to figure out how to use - this is a burden to me.

When I first saw this I presumed that the boost test python scripts had been
enhanced to provide this sort of facility in one's local environment. Now
I'm poking around to see how all this works. There is a directory with 15K
lines of *.py code it !!!
