  This would replace the need to invoke a command
  line executable alien to the targeted user base by
  the need to download, install, and use a plugin
  alien to them.
  Really, if you want to boost the interest in boost,
  make using it easy on all platforms. This means it
  should be doable in a way that's very common on
  that platform. For Unix, invoking CLI tools is
  common, so downloading and invoking a special tool
  might be OK. On Windows, downloading a project
  file is common, so ideally project files is what
  boost should provide. For obvious reasons, those
  should somehow be generated from whatever
  Boost.Build uses.
  Whether this is possible I don't know. But that's
  the ideal.
