Maybe nothing. I'd like to add a feature, but if there are plans to
abandon the current implementation, then I want to add my feature to
whatever the new implementation is. I've seen earlier posts on the list
discussing such changes, and it wasn't clear if anybody had specific
plans, or if there was consensus.

These test definitions came verbatim from the glibc sources. I guess the
BOOST.tests comment mentions regress.exe. glibc doesn't have it, and
neither do we.

What kind of log messages? Git logs? These are terse because this
project seems to have strict guidelines, and other messages I see are
generally very terse. What would you like?
