Related. I used to be able to edit status/Jamfile and remove all but a handful of libraries that I’d then test all together (so I could for example, test Graph, GraphParallel, MPI, etc.. all at once). The currently testing model doesn’t easily support testing multiple Boost libraries at one time and this slows me down.

No, life intervenes and I’ve been on travel.

This is certainly an upgrade worth discussing. I’m not convinced we should drop support for pre-C++11 compilers as I have several systems that I need to run BGL and other Boost libraries on that can’t upgrade to C++11 at this time. And I’d bet there’s other users in the same boat.
