I'm using it for several months now. Volodya added it after several
people (including me) complained about user-config.jam being too
limited. (Essentially, you would have to create a seperate user account
in order to maintain different configurations for testing and for
production use. I have no idea why it is named test-config.jam. It would
definitely be useful in non-testing context as well.)

Yes, it was, until the recent change.

It's how invokes the tests, if I understand the code correctly. ISTR, this was the change that fixed the
problem. Volodya?
