1. As Victor said, what release. IIRC, there some talks about May 1 as code
freeze date, and it's still a lot of time.

2. I'd rather no wait, as I want to get regression tests fully working with
Boost.Build V2 ASAP.

FWIW, my original change broke reporting of regex (which has tests in
regex/test and regex/example directories). Yet another variant worked fine
with both regex and functional, I'm now rerunning all the tests to see if I
broke anything else.
