Boost-Build :

is there any possibility to pass command-line arguments to run unit tests
(e.g. invoked by the unit-test rule)? There doesn't seem to be any
documented way of doing it, and adding an extra argument to the rule would
break existing usage(?).

Alternatively, is there any way of getting the output of the 'run' rule
echoed to stdout when the tests are actually run?

The rationale behind this request is that I've got a project where the test
driver should be invoked with a argument stating which test suite(s) to run.
Also, the tests are normally run interactively during development, so the
output of the test driver should be echoed to the console in 'real-time'.

TIA // Johan
