One thing I think I should add to the ongoing discussions of regression
testing -- if you don't care about .html compiler status pages, you can run
all the boost regression tests by executing

bjam -sTOOLS="..." test

in boost's status subdirectory. The primary advantage of this method is
that it will only build out-of-date tests (you can run all the tests
unconditionally by adding the "-a" command-line option before test). You
can also run specific tests and test suites by naming them on the
command-line. See status/Jamfile for the list of test targets. See
tools/build/testing.jam for a description of what the testing rules do.
