Done. Thanks, Steven. test_actions.obj alone goes from 63Mb to 12Mb.
Many of the other .obj files are also dramatically smaller. This easily
outweighs the extra build of the test framework that it requires, which
only takes up 22Mb.

Testers who care about space should delete their
bin.v2\libs\xpressive\test directories if they actually want reclaim
space. Otherwise, they'll have *both* the huge .obj files and the
smaller ones. :-P
