The current output looks like:

(boost-test "foo_test" : "libs/foo/test\foo_test.cpp" )

If you could add the test type ("run", "compile-fail", etc.) that would
cover the only killer requirement.

So the above sample might become:

(boost-test "run" "foo_test" : "libs/foo/test\foo_test.cpp" )

That's the only "must have".

Nice to have, but not essential, would be a way to pass a string from the
Jamfile to the "boost-test" output line.

We do this in the current setup by embedding the string in a comment:

# If the line with the test type includes the comment
# "# compiler_status<always_show_run_output>" then
# run output will be displayed even if the test passes.

Right now "always_show_run_output" is the only string recognized, but I
want to implement several other features that need a way to pass a string.
This would be nice, but isn't a showstopper.
