It means that it's possible to implement it, but I don't want to try
to do it.

Oh, well in that case, I guess "not too easily." I mean, the stuff
that goes in your Jamfile is the same stuff that goes in Boost.Build,
so in that sense anything you can do in Boost.Build can be done in
your Jamfile.

In that case, what about implementing a new test mode which both saves
and matches?
