Could you send a pull request instead? In retrospect test/regression should
have been a submodule instead of a part of the boost-super project, and we
are really trying to limit the number of people who have write permission
for the super-project. Eventually we will separate tools/regression, but
that is lower on the priority list that a lot of other fires being fought.
