Let me restate the idea:

1) Such a wrapper compiler would only be necessary for boost developers --
i.e., those who wish to compile out of the CVS [development] tree. As
such, I'm not sure that it would apply to commercial users.

2) It could certainly be written in python (it could be as simple as a few
lines of script), and therefore be fairly portable.
