Hmmm - I DO run my own testing matrix made with library_status. It's
much simpler than the official one and doesn't require python or
anything else. Just need to compile b2, process_jam_log and
library_test. very simple, I run it everytime a make any kind of change.

It almost always fails somewhere - the serialization library has a lot
of tests - but it's easy to fix. And with CLang/Xcode - (which I use
CMake/CTest) it's very, very fast - a few seconds for all the
serialization library tests. GCC is slower, but still fine.
