oh, nice! it does most of what I need.

I need a rule to fire off before testing.capture-output and I also
need the "generate-xml" rule to go off before RmTemps happens (I guess
I could just disable deleting of the test executables for testcov mode
if it comes to it).

I also have one test that has to link to extra libs when it's linking
shared, so it looks something like

run-test mytest : files files files : : : <link>static ;
run-test mytest : files files files extra libs : : : <link>shared ;

This seems to confuse the rules ("next alternative: required
properties: (empty)")
