Lots of large .obj files, and lots of (sometimes even larger) .pdb
files. (and some of the temp files are *large*. e.g. i see obj files
for the xpressive tests that are as much as 70 megabytes each).

the results folder for my VC10 trunk tests is 41.7GB, though that drops
to 14.4GB using NTFS compression. The release branch is slightly less.
The tests take ages, but can complete over night (on a VM which has only
1 cpu core attached).
