Sorry for being unclear.
What I mean is : in your case (to my understanding), you specify
properties in a jamfile.
But, a jamfile automatically specifies a project. Which means that in
order to specify some properties, you need to automatically create a
For Cross Builder, this is not so. You can specify per-directory
settings, even if that directory is *not part of any project*.
The will simply propagate to their subdirectories/files.
Also, in Cross Builder, there is no project root. Every directory simply

- examples 
- example1 
- example2

automatically applies to subdirectories. Also, I set the fact that all
examples are GUIs (user interface), and various other things.
