Boost Testing :

A very good idea - but why stop there?

In the root/tools directory one finds

bcp (i'm not sure what this is)
build (bjam)
release (prepare a tarball)

I think most or all of these should be tested as well.

Boost now consists of libraries organized as

boost (headers
libs(documentation, tests and source code for each library)
tools(documentation, tests and source code for tools)

So "tool" can (and should be) considered a component
at the same level as a library and be subject to exactly
the same procedures as libararies are. This includes
formal review, formal testing, directory structure
conventions, etc.
