Generally looks good on Windows/Visual Studio. However, it took me three
tries to get here. My first two builds stalled out during the build. I
didn't pay attention to where the first one stopped, but the second was in
the build for wave, no failure just the build stopped on a compile step. I
believe this only happened with msvc-14.2 - 32 bit.

After a couple restarts I was able to build without issues:

toolset arch compile Link Execute
msvc-10.0 32 X X X
msvc-10.0 64 X X X
msvc-11.0 32 X X X
msvc-11.0 64 X X X
msvc-12.0 32 X X X
msvc-12.0 64 X X X
msvc-14.0 32 X X X
msvc-14.0 64 X X X
msvc-14.1 32 X X X
msvc-14.1 64 X X X
msvc-14.2 32 X X X
msvc-14.2 64 X X X

Compile means that the b2 command completed without errors
Link means that visual studio was able to link a sample executable to a
library (libboost_thread-vcXXX-mt[-gd]-1_XX.lib) generated
Execute means that the linked program executed without errors.
