In theory I should be but I have been buried in other work.

Yes; I was going to tweak the UI code for traash to make it give us the
kinds of answers we need.

I think everyone agreed that CDash's presentation of results is not
really appropriate for Boost. If I had more time right now I'd dig up
the emails from troy on it, but I think you can get a lot from the
boost-cmake list archives.
