I agree with Robert on this even if I had not used local regression
testing but just executed b2 manually many times with different
compilers for my libraries. I test on quite a few compilers and
different versions largely on Windows and less so on Linux. Having an
automated procedure that can test all the compilers I want to use in
their various configurations at once, and then show me the regression
tests results locally, seems much better than what I do manually, even
if though I have my own command files both on Windows and Linux to make
things easier for myself.
