Thanks! Being part of the regression testing system will help out a
lot with this library. Especially since I have access to so few

As a build property it requires running the tests multiple times with
some annoying variable specifications (and also requires cleaning,
which means I have to run the ENTIRE regression test). As a variant
I can compile/test both with one Jam invocation (and can use
environment variables to eliminate the need for specifying PTW32 on
the command line).
