The documentation spends an enormous amount of time dealing with issues
related to running an executable that uses dynamic libraries. I'm
beginning to think that the build system should help with that, even if
you're not using the unit-test rule. For example:

bjam --run-command="* --test < input.txt | less" my-exe

In fact, this could be really handy for testing dynamic plugin libraries
if it would also set up the right paths. For example:

bjam --run-command="python -c 'import foo; foo.test()'" foo

I know we'll have other things for python extensions, but I hope you get
the idea.
