First off, congrats, I'm glad to see this project moving forward.
Providing support for a de-facto standard build system like CMake can
only improve the lives of Boost users, and that's the most important thing.
How does this effect the lives of Boost developers? My day-to-day work
occasionally involves changing jamfiles. Will I also need to edit CMake
files? Or is there a CMake build system champion who will be working to
keep the two build systems in sync?
