Let me see.... you have to record the start and end of every action. I don't
think it's required to change jam for that. Suppose you have a separate
program, responsible for gathering tests results, and it is called two times
test_report --start-compiling something.cpp
test_report --end-compiling something.cpp
Would that be OK? It would be very easy to add such pre/postamble to all
compiler invocation in V2.
