Is there anything in the normal test rules in Boost.Build that handles
updating the XML results? Boost.MPI (and the parallel parts of
Boost.Graph) have custom test running rules because they need to call a
wrapper program that is part of the MPI implementation to run their tests.
It could be that this custom rule (mpi-test from
tools/build/v2/tools/mpi.jam) does not have all of the features of the
normal test rule. From my looking through testing.jam and mpi.jam,
testing.jam produces XML output around line 272 in the SVN HEAD, while
mpi.jam does not mention XML at all.
