Well not entirely, because for MS backends you can pick --config Release at
build time and for the rest you need to pick -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE at
configure time.

Not to mention the address-model, choosing which MSBuild supports at build
time, but CMake not only doesn't, you have to use an entirely different
generator for 64 bit.

What does this mean for boost's regression test?
Especially for the fiber library I need a combination of:
- address-model (32/64)
- architecture (arm, arm64, mips, ....)
- binary format (elf, ms, o32, mach-o, ...)
- ABI (sysv, aapcs, ...)
- implementation (assembler, ucontext, windows fibers)
- segmented stacks (on/off)
- valgrind (on/off)
- transactional memory (on/off)
Do I need to provide for each combination a different generator?
