Just FYI, I'm working on moving the official regression tests over to the
jam version. Once the Win32 versions of all the pieces are working, I'll
let others know so they can try it on other systems.

I've got a draft version running of a program to generate the HTML status
tables from the residue left by the jamming the status/Jamfile.

Part of this project is also to make sure that the new version of
Boost.Test (which needs an object library) works well enough to merge into
the main trunk.

Thanks to Dave Abrahams for dealing with several status/Jamfile issues
which have come up during initial testing.
