There are two limitations of V2 at the moment:

- Boost.Python
- It can't do "install" that V1 does (creating various versions of libraries
with name which indicate build options).

So, if you want to just build Boost, using V1 is the official solution.
Except for the above issue, V2 is perfectly usable, though.
