I was afraid someone might ask that. There's a slippery slope here:
we don't want to have to support N build systems for each of M
libraries, which is where we were before Boost.Build. Boost.Build
turns an NxM problem into an N+M problem. Ideally, Boost.Build could
generate all these other build system formats (or at least, generate
CMake format and let it do the rest). Patches welcome, as always.
