You didn't miss anything. There is no way to do that, AFAIK. The reason
is that the Python test scripts need to ensure consistent test results
are uploaded and hence needs to ensure that the copy of Boost it
downloads is pristine. As otherwise it could be the case that tests
results show up that don't reflect any code anyone other than the tester
can see.
