Is there a reason that bjam and the rest of boost build can't be handled as
any other library as regards to testing and release?

Specifically, I would like to see somethiing like:

        Jamfile // testing bjam build and test

So that bjam is automatically tested on all platforms when ever its changed.
Of course this test/build would be run using the "released bjam" which
would be updated when show stopping bugs are fixed and after the
fixed version has been tested.

It might also provide a place to test tool configuraiton files and the like
