I intended my example as a starting point for discussion. I know that there
are some things that will need more consideration. Robustness of temporary
file path, possible race conditions, (or speed?) to name a few that come to mind.
Also issues of putting the stub file compilation into bjam build is not yet obvious
to me.

I am very interested in your reasons,
