This would be one reason why I wanted testing of tools to be on a
separate result server/set. Basically I'd rather not switch "Boost
Libraries" testing to unreleased versions of bjam. As doing so increases
the chances of something going wrong when the releases happen. But I'm
fine with having an option in the regression test script to choose to
use trunk, or any other branch, for bjam and bbv2. And then coordinating
which testers runs bjam/build trunk tools tests vs. bjam/build release
