I finally have a second compiler installed, and have been playing with
the boost regression tests to be sure everything is configured

Now I have a twin-CPU PC here, and notice that CPU loading never hits
more than 50%, easily attributed to both compilers choosing to ignore
the 'spare' CPU. It occurs to me that when building multiple tool-sets,
the outputs for each toolset are totally independant. So I start
woundering if it would it be possible to process each toolset in a
separate thread?

Clearly not a frequently needed option, so not a high priority, I hate
to let ideas pass by for the lack of asking <g>
