Our regression testing system is not really generic.
Off the top of my head:
- It assumes use of Boost.Build
- process_jam_log knows about Boost's directory layout,
  and uses this information to assign each test case to a library.
- Paths to various files (such as explicit-failures-markup.xml)
  are hard-coded to the Boost tree.

With that said, you're welcome to try, but it'll
be at your own risk.

There are no docs that I'm aware of.
The top-level script for generating the
html pages is tools/regression/xsl_reports/
