  The report is completely generated from scratch
on every run, even though a significant fraction
of it doesn't change. I suspect that the best
way to optimize it would be to make the report
generation more incremental. (The old XSL scripts
did in fact work this way. When I wrote boost_report,
I assumed that it didn't matter, since it took
less than 2 minutes at the time.)
