I have completed a run of cw-9.4 tests (using 'warnings=on', so you should
actually be able to see the errors now!) and have started the msvc tests

NOTE: Having figured out how to set up a monitored build run (using bjam
-l600), I am adding msvc-8.0 to the tests. This is because some of the
date_time tests were asserting . (This is a known issue and is noted by Jeff

NOTE: In the V1 regression run, the iostream compression library tests are
skipped (leaving the entry white) if the libraries don't exist. This could
be done using something like:

rule comp-test ( compression : sources )
   if ! $(NO_$(compression))
      return [ run $(compression)_test : $(sources) ] ;
   return ;

(this hasn't been verified, though). That would make it consistent with V1
and cut the errors in half!

As I mentioned above, I have started another msvc run now. Let me know when
the other changes are in so I can restart it.

Having had several run throughs with running the regression tests, I am now
at the point where I can run the tests once every day, provided that the
BBv2 tests aren't broken.

BTW: if there is a BBv2 problem (e.g. like the previous ptr_container
problem), this doesn't get logged by the regression script. It would be
useful if this could be captured and displayed on the regression results
table to save me or others from posting the issue directly.
